JAM CITY / PORTKEY GA
Two years since the launch of award-winning Harry Potter RPG mobile game Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, creators Jam City exclusively revealed staggering gameplay statistics, and announced a competition for fans to see their costume design appear in the game.
The Harry Potter mobile game sees players live their fantasy of attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, participating in challenges and games, exploring secrets and advancing through several rites of passage at the school, all while investigating an original mystery, with the help of several familiar faces from the Harry Potter series. From being sorted in Year 1, to becoming a prefect in Year 5, and attending classes and forming friendships and rivalries, Jam City has created a customizable and continually developing story arc for players.
In an exclusive reveal, Jam City shared that Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery has received a staggering 35 billion minutes of gameplay. During gameplay, players have participated in over 50 million Quidditch matches, completed 2.1 million OWL exams, and cast over 2 billion spells! The two most popular Hogwarts houses were Gryffindor and Ravenclaw, and the Niffler (seen in the Fantastic Beasts film franchise) was the most popular magical creature.
