New Harry Potter To Follow The Two-Part Movie Line
Perhaps in order to squeeze even more out of the series, Warner Bros. Pictures intends to turn the last film installment, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," into two parts. It's slated to come out in November and in following the same trend, the gaming division for Warner Bros. will take a two-part approach to the interactive version.
As reported by GameSpot, Warner Bros. Interactive and Electronic Arts have announced Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, DS, PC and mobile devices. And while Part 1 of the game will launch alongside Part 1 of the movie, you can expect the same process to happen when Part 2 drops in 2011. EA's Bright Light Studio will handle development responsibilities and according to project lead Jonathan Bunney, this new Potter adventure will be "darker and more action-oriented;" for instance, those protective walls of the standard Hogwarts School will disappear. Young players will strike out on a quest to locate and defeat Voldemort's Horcruxes, which means enemies like Death Eaters and Snatchers will be included in the perilous adventure. Certain recent installments haven't really been up to snuff, although they typically show plenty of potential on the surface. They just need to solidify the control and give us a bit more to do; if Bright Light can manage that, perhaps this new effort will be well worth it for fans of J.K. Rowling's smash franchise.
But doesn't she have quite enough money by now? Maybe if we give the game a 10, she'll fork over .000001% of her fortune, which is probably still around a trillion dollars.
