Harry Potter game by Rocksteady?

#1 Posted by SiN13 (234 posts) -

Was thinking since WB has the rights to Batman and Harry Potter, I wonder if Rocksteady had a chance to take a crack at the Harry Potter universe if we would finally get a good Potter game. What do you think?

You know, as much faith I have in them as a game studio I don't think Harry Potter would be in their wheelhouse. If we're being serious...

I don't know, a license like that seems it'd be better off with the persona team or a developer who isn't focused on action game play. Not saying they can't but I really enjoyed the first potter films and their atmosphere.

I think R* would be the best to develop a game like it seeing how they can create such immersive worlds and how they made Bully. If it was an original story in the Harry Potter world, though, I'm not sure if it would be whimsical enough or whatever.

@FluxWaveZ: I'm pretty sure I was much more immersed in Arkham Asylum than I have been any Rockstar game. Although this doesn't matter because I don't think a Harry Potter game could ever be anything better than mediocre.

I agree a tactical RPG with the social elements would really work with this license and for the persona team a license like this could be a great way to break into other markets where their games go largely unnoticed by the wider audience.
