'Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery' role-playing game announced for mobile

Fans were quite excited when Pokemon GO developer Niantic was announced as the developer for Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, an augmented-reality game similar to GO. Interactive Entertainment, mobile gaming studio Jam City is bringing Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery to mobile devices next year. This is a new label under Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment for gaming media related to the Harry Potter franchise.

This time, development duties will be handled by LA based Jam City, who were previously responsible for mobile titles Family Guy: Another Freakin' Mobile Game and Avengers Academy.

The release date for Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery has not yet been announced, but you can bet that the second we hear anything concrete, we'll be shouting it from the rooftops. This might disappoint fans who were hoping to encounter the characters but we should be able to see Harry's dad James Potter, who was also a fan-favorite. The subsidiary is said to be "dedicated to creating experiences inspired by the magic and adventures of J.K. Rowling's Wizarding World". The company, known for its work on puzzle games like Cookie Jam and Panda Pop, has licensed the IP from Warner Bros. Throughout the game, would-be wizards and witches can take magical classes such as Defense Against the Dark Arts, Potions, and Duelling Club. Since it is being referred to as a "story-driven mobile RPG" we can assume that fans will be treated to a new storyline in the grand Harry Potter universe. And according to VentureBeat, the game is "taking place in the mid-1980s after the Wizarding Wars", and it will include the likes of Albus Dumbledore, Hagrid, and more.


Once the app is released in 2018, fans can download the app once it is released on the Amazon AppStore, Apple's App Store, and Google Play faster than you can say: "Quidditch!" In other words, 2018 might be the best year to be a muggle yet.
