Harry Potter RPG In the Making At Avalanche, Unreal Engine 4
Warner Bros. is seemingly hiring for a new RPG set in the world of Harry Potter. Seemingly, I said, mainly because there's no reference to this IP in the said job listing, but it really looks like this could be it. The publisher is "looking for a talented storyteller with a deep understanding of British culture and grammatical presentation." Do you see it?
RPG are instead explicitly named in the listing.
SUMMARY OF POSITION:
Warner Bros. Games Inc. seeks a Senior Writer for the Avalanche Story department. We are looking for a talented storyteller with a deep understanding of British culture and grammatical presentation. Applicants should be creative self-motivated problem solvers who enjoy collaborating with other writers and designers to create an immersive game narrative. If this is you, send us your resume and writing samples (both humor and drama represented) for consideration.
- Provide British authenticity to the tone of the project.
- Receive feedback and modify work based on direction from both the internal team and franchise representatives.
- Review product as necessary to help maintain on-brand messaging.
Work that shows a deep understanding of gaming narrative and branching storytelling, particularly in the realm of RPGs.
On top of that, another job listing clearly reports two familiar names in gaming: Avalanche (developer behind Toy Story, Cars, Disney Infinity, now owned by Warner) and Unreal Engine 4. So, could this all really hinting at a new role playing title from the makers of the Just Cause series and Mad Max pretty good open world game, built on Epic Games' engine? We'll see...
