Attention Apple fans! Variety is reporting that there will be a new Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince application released later this year. The article states Warner Bros are “positioning itself as a major distributor of applications for the iPhone and iPod Touch.”

The piece continues:
The studio’s first app was the “The Dark Knight: Batmobile” game
tied to the December DVD release. This year, it put out the “Watchmen:
Justice is Coming” street brawler game app, which all purchasers play
together. The game runs in real time, so, for example, when a character
is punched by one player, other players immediately see the bruise. Days
before “Terminator Salvation” hit theaters, Warner released a graphic
novel app to get fans caught up with the latest “Terminator.” Next up
are apps tied to Harry Potter and Sherlock Holmes.”

No word on when the application will be available, and we will update once it has been released.
