According to the latest hint from reliable reporter Jason Schreier, WB Games could announce a brand new Batman and Harry Potter games sometime this year.

Avalanche Software, a WB Games studio are looking for a Lighting Technical Artist  to work on "an exciting, soon to be announced AAA title". According to earlier reports from Kotaku's Jason Schreier, Avalanche Software's new game is the next instalment in the Harry Potter series.

As you may remember, a gameplay video of a new Harry Potter game leaked last year , and by the looks of it, this could indeed be a new game from Avalanche Software. Schreier also hinted that the official announcement could be coming this year. 

Over at ResetEra, one user commented that this probably means the new Batman game will not be announced anytime soon to which Schreier replied: "If only there were a venue in which multiple games could be announced at the same time".

Now, this is an obvious hint to several game announcements in 2020 but just like any other leak, rumour or unconfirmed info, take it with a grain of salt. 

The details about the new Harry Potter and Batman games are pretty scarce at the moment. The latter is rumoured to revolve around Court of Owls and WB Games have been teasing the game with cryptic artworks over on Twitter.

Both announcements could be coming on E3 2020 but due to a current situation with coronavirus and other issues, WB Games could host their own event or even reveal the games via webstream. We'll have to wait and see.
