HARRY POTTER: WARNER OPENS A VIDEO GAME DIVISION
While an Augmented Reality Harry Potter has just been announced for Niantic (creators of Pokémon GO ), Warner is also coming out of the woods and unveiling his own plans for JK Rowling’s franchise.
In a post on the site Pottermore – official website of the saga – we learn the creation of a division dedicated to video games that will feature “characters familiar at different times in their lives in the universe of Harry Potter. “
David Haddad, president of Warner Bros Interactive, said Portkey Games would have “talented creators” in its teams and that the games “fit into the magical universe created by JK Rowling. “
Both parties promise more concrete announcements “very soon”, especially since a game on consoles is currently in development.
