Even though the Harry Potter franchise is on its last legs when it comes to movies and books, there’s no limit to how much you can extend the Harry Potter universe with a well-crafted MMO. And that’s exactly what Warner Bros. are planning to do, going by the pottermore.com teaser website that just popped up out of nowhere. Well, we don’t know about the well crafted part yet.
To be perfectly honest, not even the MMo part is rock solid info, but there is the matter of the site’s trademark page: “Providing multiple-user access to a global computer information network; providing on-line chat rooms and electronic bulletin boards for transmission of messages among users in the field of general interest; providing on-line communications links which transfer the web site user to other local and global web pages; providing on-line facilities for real-time interaction with other computer users concerning topics of general interest.”
Sound MMO-y enough for you? Lord Of The Rings Online makers Turbine has also been rumored to be working on a Harry Potter MMO a few years ago, and JK Rowling’s YouTube page is currently showing a countdown which expires on the 23rd of June. Shouldn’t that be a Scribd page, JK Rowling?
