4/1: EA is NOT working on a Mature-rated Harry Potter game

All the books have been written. All the movies have been filmed. All the video games have been developed. The Harry Potter series has reached the end. Or has it?

IGN is reporting that FX is working with “The Shield” producer Shawn Ryan on a gritty reboot of the franchise that is tentatively known as “The Aurors.”

Naturally, the network has enlisted EA to create a video game tie-in, in this case a Mature-rated affair that’ll include “‘dynamic rooftop spell battles’ and an interrogation system similar to the one seen in Rockstar’s L.A. Noire.”

Gag Reflex: Bravo IGN. Mocking both the culture of “gritty reboots” while simultaneously riffing on the Mortal Kombat: Rebirth short makes this a classic prank.
