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.
David Haddad, President of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, says he is ‘thrilled’ by the new launch, and the games to come.
‘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.’
Alas, this is all we can say for now. But we’ll be updating you on more Portkey developments very soon. Really soon, actually...
