Reuters has a new article regarding the video game industry and their struggle in these tougher economic times, with the piece noting there will be some good news this summer as "in June, Electronics Arts will release the "Harry Potter
and the Half-Blood Prince" game to coincide with the film of
the same name by Warner Bros Pictures." While only last week, retailers had the release dates reading July, however as of today on Amazon, all the various platforms of the new HBP video game now reflect a June 30, 2009 release date.
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince will be released here in the US and Canada on July 15; you can read the current international list of release dates here. Be sure to check out the latest trailer released last month here, and our collection of stills from the game, here.
Update: Thanks to Emma from SS who owled to say Amazon UK now has their date a few days later at July 3rd.
I’m excited I admit. But it’s not fair that the Uk never get anything first :( Suppose thats life ahh well… Still excited though, i’m going to be after you US owners on the Wii asking for an insight!! :D
Oooh I’m looking forward to this game, I hope it’s true! If amazon says so, I have a good feeling about it.
i was expecting it to come out a bit earlier than the movie but what ever. i don’t know if i’ll get it unfortunately, if it has online and i can play with hundreds of people then ya i’ll get it for sure if not than i’ll rent it.
Woooooo!!!!! I love the games. I saw on IGN that they said it came out in august – I was shocked! I’m so glad that it will be released earlier than that.
I was a bit disappointed with OOTP on Wii but I’m playing it again and it’s pretty good. Didn’t we all want to explore Hogwarts? Now we can and we can play the game at the same time because we had to do things for other students. Think about that.
I can’t wait for Quidditch again. I just want to play it. I’m sure it will be great, but you know they can’t make it perfect. At least they are spending a lot of time and effort making the games.
