Harry Potter has been causing problems for more than just Voldemort as of late. In September, EA announced that it would be forced to delay its game tie-in to Warner Bros' Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, following the film's abrupt retreat to summer 2009. A day after the announcement, EA said that the delay would result in $120 million in revenue vanishing from its fiscal year--which only aggravated the publisher's full-year losses of $1 billion.
With Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince now locked in for a July 15 theatrical release, EA and Warner Bros Interactive said today that the game will finally be given its day at retail on June 30. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince will be available on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 2, PSP, Wii, DS, PC, Mac, and mobile platforms.
Developed at EA Bright Light in Guildford, England, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is based on book six of J.K. Rowling's best-selling franchise. In Half-Blood Prince, players will put on Potter's wizard hat as he battles his way through Hogwarts' pimply legions and Voldemort's nefarious demons.
