Warner Bros has announced a standalone game based on the Harry Potter sport Quidditch is currently in the works. PS5 and PS4 versions aren't confirmed just yet, but it is coming to PC and consoles. You can probably be safe assuming the title will release for PlayStation consoles, with a release date not confirmed yet. Harry Potter: Quidditch Champions is its full name, developed by Unbroken Studios.

The team released a Battle Royale title called Fractured Lands and also lists itself as a co-developer of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. Quidditch Champions will be a "fast-paced, competitive multiplayer game featuring the world’s most iconic magical sport," according to a newly published FAQ. Already in development for several years, you'll team up with friends online and compete in matches, with your player being fully customisable. Due to its online nature, Quidditch Champions will require a constant internet connection — no single player content is announced right now.

Traditionally, a game of Quidditch consists of two teams of seven players: a Seeker, a Keeper, two Beaters, and three Chasers. Presuming the game stays faithful to this setup, we're looking at 7v7 online bouts. Sign-ups for playtests are being taken on the game's official website.

Of course, Hogwarts Legacy recently released without any Quidditch content. While you could go to the Quidditch pitch and even fly a broomstick, you couldn't actually compete in matches. Quidditch Champions is perhaps the real reason why the sport didn't feature in the Hogwarts simulator. This isn't the first time a standalone Quidditch game has been produced either, with Harry Potter: Quidditch World Cup providing a great, digital recreation of the sport on PS2.
