The Harry Potter part is speculation, but: http://www.warnerbroscareers.com/search-jobs/?157583BR

1.) Warner Brothers basically only ever publishes games based on IPs they work with, and this game is listed as having "franchise representatives".
2.) Avalanche has historically made movie licensed games (Toy Story, Cars, Disney Infinity).
3.) I'm not sure there's a more logical IP with British culture and grammatical presentation to be working on.
4.) It's definitely an RPG, whatever it is.
Edit: 5.) Also seems to be an open world game with an extensive economy system, and they want someone who has worked on very large games, "the bigger the better".

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.

JOB RESPONSIBILITIES:
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.

JOB REQUIREMENTS:
Work that shows a deep understanding of gaming narrative and branching storytelling, particularly in the realm of RPGs.

Edit:

Some extra info:

Warner Bros. Games Inc. seeks a Senior Environment Artist, Unreal for the Avalanche Animation department. Are you an Environment Artist that would like to part of an exciting new AAA game project?

http://www.warnerbroscareers.com/search-jobs/?157376BR

JOB RESPONSIBILITIES:
Able to take animation from initial concept through to implementation in Unreal Engine 4 using Unreal's animation blueprint system.

Oh shit, I've said for years that Harry Potter would be perfect for a western take on Persona. Dividing your time between classes at Hogwarts and hanging with your friends in Hogsmeade while also going off on quests to stop the Death Eaters could potentially be an awesome game.

To be honest the emphasis on "Brittish culture" makes me think more of Dr Who than Harry Potter.

Interesting either way.

I don't think Warner Bros is involved with Dr. Who though, right?

You'd have to do accelerated time, as in, like, one in-game year is six months (or 3 months), but damn I would love that.
