We're Getting a Harry Potter RPG Set at Hogwarts in the 1980s


A new Harry Potter game is coming

Interactive recently revealed a new label expressly created to make new games for the fantasy series, with the publisher now proclaiming that it has plans to release a fresh RPG based on the property named Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery that's set to release in 2018 for Android and iOS. We do know the game will launch under Portkey Games, a new label dedicated to creating experiences inspired by the Wizarding World.

Warner Bros. and Jam City have announced an opportunity to finally transport your likeness into the magical world of Harry Potter. A press release suggests that a majority of the academics fans remember from the series will appear in the game, and that it will hew closely to the established lore. Unlike "Harry Potter: A Hogwarts Mystery", this version will be location-based, and allow users to navigate an augmented reality version of the Wizarding World in their own cities and neighborhoods similar to "Pokemon Go".

20 years after J.K. Rowling published her iconic first novel, new initiates into the world of "Witchcraft and Wizardry" have a chance to join the world through an upcoming mobile game, "Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery". Wizards Unite will also be a free-to-play game, so fans of the Potter franchise can try out both titles and see which one they prefer.

Warner Bros. has now announced that a Harry Potter RPG is coming which is set in the Harry Potter universe. But there will be no Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, or Hermione Granger to greet them.

Players will take classes and participate in extracurriculars as part of the game, including Defense Against the Dark Arts, Potions, and Duelling Club. The Harry Potter films, produced by Warner Bros. Warner Bros. and Rowling licensed the IP to Universal Studios for the creation of Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park attractions. There is no specific release date other than 2018.

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!"
