"What an honor it is for Jam City to develop a mobile game for one of the largest and most iconic brands in history", co-founder and CEO of Jam City Chris DeWolfe said in a statement. The game takes place in the 1980s - which in the Harry Potter timeline means it is set well before Harry, Ron, Hermione and their classmates began their studies - but it will feature such characters as Dumbledore, Hagrid and Professor Snape.

In "Hogwarts Mystery", players progress through their years at Hogwarts, participating in the magical classes and activities Potterheads have come to love, including Defence Against the Dark Arts, Potions, and Duelling Club.

Jam City assures Harry Potter fans that the game has been created by people that love the books and movies, and so it will remain true to the wizarding world created by J.K. Rowling. Through a partnership with Warner Bros.
