In quarterly financial filings released, EA, makers of the Harry Potter video games, have noted in their upcoming releases listing a "Harry Potter Title TBA" is slated for release on console, handheld, and PC systems.  In a press release from the Electronic Arts company, the title is listed for release in the third quarter of 2011, which, as GameSpy notes, this would translate to a October-December 2010 release.  While a release during this time would fall in line with the schedule release date for "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I," there has yet to be any official word regarding any upcoming Harry Potter video game.  Do stay close to Leaky for updates as they come in.

I’d really want a Deathly Hallows video game! I hope it’s a lot like HBP for the Wii, because that one was awsome! But it’ll likely be different since you’re not at Hogwarts much so there won’t be much of a headquarters place where you go between levels…

A Deathly Hallows one would have to completely re-worked – they’re not at Hogwarts!

I am intrigued to see how they will handle the different plot format of the novel. Without the ability to use Hogwarts as a rich environment to explore, this game will seem much more restrictive than those that have preceded it.

well, id love that but i do agree with nwrosey about the base being the tent. thats just dumb. but it would have a lot of action in it, 7 potter, malfoy manor, the ministry. then part 2 would be full of dueling. i just cant wait for lego hp. thats gonna be cool. i just hope the DH videogame wont suck like the HBP game. i completed that game in like a freaking day, and then got bored with it.

i would really like to see a HP game with the feel of a grandtheftauto game just without the guns and cars. I feel like that would be amazing to play

Shouldn’t the headline be “Fall 2010?”

And I’d like to know if the game is about all DH or is divided into parts like movies and only the first part will be released in fall???

I think that they should make either 2 games for each movie release, or have 2 games part of a 2-disc set so that there is a crud-load of content… yeah… and not restrict us to only 5-6 spells… and after all is said and done, and the movies are done, they should put out a Harry Potter RPGFTW! and include every single spell ever used in the books, movies, and games…. WHOOT! Also, prep the 360 version for Natal, the wii with Wiimotion +, and the ps3 with whatever motion gimmick they’re releasing soon… WHO IS WITH ME?!?
