New studio Portkey Games will make Harry Potter games


Warner Bros. have announced a new game development wing called Portkey Games, where they will focus on Harry Potter titles that “will vary from mobile to console games”.

The games are said to feature new characters as well as existing characters from the canon, potentially at various points in their life. Portkey Games are also working alongside Niantic, the developers of Pokemon Go, to create an AR mobile game that will immerse players into the Wizarding World.

“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,” says David Haddad, President of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.
