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.
Portkey Games has confirmed two games thus far, but there are plans to develop more games in the future:
- Harry Potter: Wizards Unite (2018, developer: Niantic Labs)
- Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery (2018, developer: Jam City)
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.
