Update on the Harry Potter Video Games

Two quick bits of news today regarding the Harry Potter video games. First, EA, makers of the games, gave a presentation in France, and revealed several new stills from the upcoming Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince game. You can see our entire collection of game stills here. At last word, the game is due to be released on July 14, 2009. A reminder as well, that the (caution, game spoilers at the link) soundtrack to the video game scored by James Hannigan will be made available next week.

A second update comes from Variety, who has a piece the licenses for the video games. The article points out that "EA's deal extends through Warner Bros.' last film, which will be part 2 of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" in 2011."  At this point we do not believe there will be two video games for Deathly Hallows or know at what point the game may be released either with Part one in November of 2010 or in July with the release of Deathly Hallows, Part Two.

Maybe there will be two DH videogames and we will be able to continue to second installment using a game save from the first part. But again it would be strange.

I’m guessing there will be one massive game, but it won’t come out till DH part 2 to avoid spoilers.

I agree, there would be less problems if they made on mega game. I can’t wait, either way!

When is the MMORPG coming out? Didn’t Warner Bros just give Turbine a bunch of money? They make MMOGs right?

About the soundtrack, I adore the music!!! It definitely captures the magic of the game. I really like the songs: Return to Hogwarts (Epic!!!), Loss at Hogwarts (with the sad voices) and Sadness at Hogwarts (somehow the sound reminds me of the beginning of The Beauty and the Beast when the voices start humming XD).

Wow those new pictures from the HBP game are really awesome. I would love to have a two part DH game. I am wondering what would be the end of the DH game? I mean what if you don’t defeat Voldemort? Does Harry die instead of Voldy?

I didn’t listen to the soundtrack for the HBP game. I also can’t wait to play the HBP game, because I always love playing the Harry Potter games. It is another way for me to experience the magical world of Harry Potter and Hogwarts.

They’ll probably make two games for deathly hallows just to make more money, but it will be good for the fans…:))

Guess That Book

The Death Eater had pulled his head out of the bell jar. His appearance was utterly bizarre, his tiny baby's head bawling loudly while his thick arms flailed dangerously in all directions, narrowly missing Harry, who ducked. Harry raised his wand but to h
