Harry Potter Game Delayed Alongside Movie

Publisher EA today confirmed that, much like the film it is meant to accompany, the Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Price video game has been delayed until next summer. nope

Both the movie and the game were originally slated to launch this fall. However, studio Warner Bros. recently delayed the film, based on the sixth of J.K. Rowling's seven Harry Potter novels, until next summer due to marketing reasons.

While many expected the game to be postponed alongside, comments from EA and developer EA Bright Light suggested the company was still considering a fall release. Now due out in summer 2009, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince will arrive on PC, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii, Nintendo DS and PSP.
