Portkey Games (website) is a video game publishing label founded in 2018 by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, dedicated to creating new Wizarding World mobile and video game experiences.

Games published under the Portkey Games label are not written by J.K. Rowling, but rather inspired by her original stories. J.K. Rowling is supportive of Portkey Games and has entrusted the design and creation of the games to WB Games and the developers involved. However, J.K. Rowling does not approve every decision, or game, created under the Portkey Games label.

Game releases

Portkey Games has confirmed two games thus far, but there are plans to develop more games in the future:

Portkey Games and J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World

Pottermore released a guide (link) detailing how Portkey Games fits into the Wizarding World’s timeline and lore. According to the article, Hogwarts Mystery is the first game that establishes an alternate timeline, set in the 1980s and roughly follows the timeline of Harry Potter’s adventures in Hogwarts.

The following image illustrates how the game fits into the general Wizarding World timeline (a full resolution file is available for download here):
