EXCLUSIVE: Harry Potter: Quidditch Champions is Having its Biggest Playtest Yet
Harry Potter: Quidditch Champions is having its biggest playtest yet this month ahead of the game’s impending release.
Sources, who wish to remain anonymous have provided Insider Gaming with the details of the test which starts on October 6, 2023, and will last for three weeks, ending October 27, 2023.
The new Harry Potter: Quidditch Champions playtest is being dubbed “the biggest playtest yet” and aims to test new modes, new Quidditch pitch locations, new cosmetics, new emotes, and more. Insider Gaming understands that the new playtest is for Steam only, despite the game being announced for unspecified consoles.
Harry Potter: Quidditch Champions is currently in development by Unbroken Studios and will be published by Warner Bros. Games. Players can customize their character and select the position of one of four roles; Chaser, Seeker, Beater, and Keeper. As previously mentioned, the game will feature cosmetic items including clothing, emotes, and more.
Earlier this year, gameplay footage of Quidditch Champions leaked online, which revealed players can choose from the likes of Harry Potter, Draco Malfoy, Ron Weasley, and more.
Despite no release date for the game, current speculation online suggests that the game could be released in 2024 due to the game’s current state of development. In addition, with a three-week-long playtest on the horizon, it’s clear that Unbroken Studios is putting the pieces together nicely for a release.
Harry Potter: Quidditch Champions release will come after the hugely successful Hogwarts Legacy, which grossed $1 billion in retail sales within just a few weeks. Its success has led to claims online that Avalanche Software, the development studio behind Hogwarts Legacy is already developing a sequel.
