Jam City and Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment announced today Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, the first game in which players can choose their own path and live experiences like real students of Hogwarts.
The game will be launched by Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment’s Portkey Games, a label dedicated to the creation of game experiences inspired by the magic and adventures of the world created by JK Rowling.
“What an honor it is for Jam City to develop a mobile game for one of the largest and most iconic brands in history,” said Chris DeWolfe, co-founder, and CEO of Jam City. “As Harry Potter fanatics ourselves, we have great respect for the millions of people throughout the world who have followed the Harry Potter stories for more than 20 years. This game is a labor of love for our developers and artists, who are dedicated to creating the most magical entertainment and gameplay experience for everyone who adores J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World.”
“The new game lets Harry Potter fans live the dream of becoming a student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry by creating their own character and progressing through their years at Hogwarts. Along the way players will participate in all of the magical classes and activities they have come to love – like Defence Against the Dark Arts, Potions, Duelling Club, and more. Most of the iconic professors from the Harry Potter stories reprise their roles in the game.”
“Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is a mobile gaming experience inspired by J.K. Rowling’s spell-binding lore, and it will be an exciting, fun way for fans to experience the Wizarding World,” said David Haddad, president of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “It is great to work with Jam City on the game, as the company has a proven track record of bringing rich, beloved worlds to players of mobile entertainment.”
Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery will be available next year for mobile devices through the App Store, Google Play, and Amazon AppStore.
