Fans of the most famous little wizard of recent times (yes, I’m talking about Harry Potter) are having their fair share of problems nowadays since, following the Warner Bros Interactive announcement regarding the delay of the movie Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Electronic Arts released a press statement officially confirming that the game was pushed back to Summer 2009 as well. And, having in mind that both titles were expected to hit the market on the 21st of November, it’s quite a big delay. But, hopefully, Electronic Arts will take advantage of the extra time and spend a few more days developing their title in order to bring fans worldwide the most accurate virtual Harry Potter experience.
Apparently, we should be expecting the best thing ever, as Robert Nashak, VP of EA Casual Studios said that the company is thrilled with the levels of authenticity and playability the game has. “We are creating an immersive game experience that Potter fans around the world will really enjoy playing as they fly and duel their way through the story of the film. The game will feature new Wii gestures and increased gameplay capabilities across all of the platforms,” he said.
And hopefully the company really has some big cards up their sleeves, since this huge delay won’t make fans too forgiving in case a poorly done Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince video game will hit the market. But we’ll just have to wait and see when the game is released this summer, for all available gaming platforms on the market.
