News: To match the release date of the movie.
After Warner Brothers moved the movie version of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince to next Summer, it was assumed that Electronic Arts would reschedule the game to match. Today, EA made it official that the release date for the Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince game would coincide with the movie's new July 17 opening. There's no word on whether or not any changes will be made to game during the delay.
In the game of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, players will return to Hogwarts to help Harry survive a fraught sixth year. They will also have a chance to engage in exciting wizard duels, mix and brew magical ingredients in Potions class and take to the air to lead the Gryffindor Quidditch team to victory. Players may even get sidetracked by Ron's romantic entanglements as they journey towards a dramatic climax and discover the identity of the Half-Blood Prince.
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is being developed by EA's Bright Light Studio and will be released for the DS, PC, PS2, PS3, PSP, Wii and Xbox 360.
