  • Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery release date rumours, platforms and gameplay

Warner Bros. has now announced that a Harry Potter RPG is coming which is set in the Harry Potter universe.

We're already dusting off our hats and waving our wands in excitement! However, Jam City, the studio known for Cook Jam, Avengers Academy and Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff, is developing the mobile game.

Titled Harry Potter and the Portrait of What Looked Like a Large Pile of Ash, the amalgamation of words could - at a stretch - be the work of JK Rowling.

"There are not many Harry Potter titles in the App Store because J.K. and her team are very selective", says Jam City president Josh Yguado. The company, known for its work on puzzle games like Cookie Jam and Panda Pop, has licensed the IP from Warner Bros.

J.K. Rowling has said there will never be another Harry Potter novel, and while we understand and respect that decision, it turns out if we want to read another one we don't really need her.




Of course, the name of the game also has us believing that there will be some kind of mystery involved, which is pretty in keeping with the books - Harry Potter couldn't go five minutes without finding out that one of his teachers was a Death Eater or some such, after all. The result is a somewhat nonsensical, but also totally plausible story in which Harry, Ron and Hermione sneak up on a gang of Death Eaters in Hogwarts, challenge them to battle, and end up saying some very weird things to one another. It's called "Hogwarts Mystery" because it's a simulation of the famous wizard school that Harry Potter attends or visits in all seven books and movies.

For a start the predictive keyboard dubbed the book Harry Potter and the Portrait of What Looked Like a Large Pile of Ash, we guess there's a lot more ash and burnt things in the book that we remember.

When players log in to the game on their smartphones, they will instantly be transported to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

That's not a line from the weirdest Harry Potter fan-fiction ever written (even though, admittedly, there's some really unusual stuff out there).

The fifth installment of one of the most popular shooter games for Android has to be near the top of our list, and that's Modern Combat 5: Blackout developed by Gameloft.
