Portkey Games is an English video games company founded in 2017, working under the Warner Brothers[3] banner producing games related to J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts franchises.[4][5] "Portkey Games" will produce games in the same manor of that of previous Harry Potter video games, however they will not be games tied-in to currently released media in the Harry Potter Universe.[6][7]

Overview[edit]

Portkey Games first announced their first game in 2017,[8][9] working with Pokemon Go creator's Niantic to produce a game known as "Harry Potter: Wizards Unite."[10][11] The game will feature the same Augmented Reality as in Pokemon Go,[12][13] but feature characters from the Harry Potter universe.[14] Wizards Unite would be slated for release in 2018.[15][16]

Later in 2017, before the release of Wizards Unite,[17][18] Portkey Games also announced a second mobile game in development called "Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery"[19][20] Hogwart's Mystery is set to allow the player to play as a pupil in Hogwarts, before the events of the Harry Potter series.[21][22] The game will be released exclusively for iOS and Android[23][24]
