The first game to launch under the Wizarding World-inspired Portkey Games label is available to download today – how exactly do Portkey Games tie into Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts?
Above, you can see a timeline of the main events from the Wizarding World’s past, present and future, including the original seven Harry Potter books, the Hogwarts Library books, the Cursed Child play, and the Fantastic Beasts films. In parallel is the new label from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, Portkey Games, which will draw inspiration from J.K. Rowling’s original stories to create new gaming experiences that put the player at the centre of their own Wizarding World adventures.
The first title under the Portkey Games label, Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, is now available to download. Hogwarts Mystery is set in a different time period for players to create their own alternative Wizarding World timeline, the 1980s. In this role-playing mobile game, players will be able to immerse themselves in those authentic Wizarding World settings. For the very first time, they can create their own personalised student character, visit their house’s common room and make choices that will define their own Hogwarts story. As they progress, players will learn magical skills from some familiar faces, from crafting potions under Snape’s critical eye, to Transfiguration with Professor McGonagall.
With the launch of Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery – and more mobile and console gaming experiences to come – Portkey Games welcomes the growing Wizarding World fan community to bring their own magical adventures to life and explore more of this ever-widening universe – past, present and future.
