Avalanche (Disney Infinity, now owned by Warner) hiring for.. a UE4 Harry Potter RPG?


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".

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.

Give me that Harry Potter MMO set in real time, with houses, quidditch and classes and the like. Every year counts as a school year. Let's go.


Make it as good as these


and I'm in freaking day zero. One of the funnest licensed games I ever played.
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.

Being my dream mmo game since I first saw the first movie as a kid, please make this, with each expansion being a new year in the school


Nirolak. If this turns out to not be a Harry Potter game I'll be writing you a very unpleasant letter.


A modern harry potter game will be amazing. Exploring Hogwarts in Order of the Phoenix was so good. I really hope it's a Harry Potter game.


give it to me. I don't care if it's J W or MMO. just hook it to my veins. been waiting for this game for a millennia


I want to be excited, but it's more likely a licenced Fantasic Beasts game that doesn't involve Hogwarts.


Needs to have a character creator, an in-depth personality quiz for your house and the ability to specialize in particular sorts of magic (all should be obvious if true).

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.
