A new label for Harry Potter Games, named Portkey Games, has been announced via Twitter and Pottermore today. There has also been information that there will be new games for both console and mobile in the near future.
“You will soon be able to explore the wizarding world through a series of new mobile and console games – and you know we love any excuse to feel like actual, proper wizards.
So named because Portkeys transport wizards from place to place, Portkey Games will give Harry Potter fans the chance to be transported into the wizarding world and placed at the centre of their own adventure. The games will vary from mobile to console games, and will feature both new characters and – excitingly – could feature familiar characters ‘at different points in their lives’ from the Harry Potter stories.
As well as the familiar, you’ll also be able to visit new locations and explore new story elements, again, all inspired by the wizarding world.”
President of Warner Bros. Interactive, David Haddad, has advised that he is thrilled by the new launch and is looking forward to the games that will be released.
“With Portkey Games, we are thrilled to answer the fans’ requests for more games inspired by J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World,’ he says. ‘We are working with talented creators to build games that focus on player-generated stories, which will live alongside the magical universe created by J.K. Rowling.”
That’s all the detail we have at the moment, but we will keep you posted when further information is available.
