When Warner Brothers announced
that they'd be moving Half-Blood Prince
to 2009, many wondered what would happen to the film's video game that was scheduled for a November release.
Today, EA officially announced
that the game will be delayed until Summer '09. With the announcement came two sets of remarks; one of which belonging to film producer David Heyman:
We have enjoyed a wonderful partnership with EA in collaborating on the videogames for all of the Harry Potter films. The visual look of the game for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is incredibly authentic to the film and will provide a truly compelling experience for everyone who plays.”
Also today, the Wall Street Journal published an article
detailing how fans reacted to the movie delay. This news poster was quoted in the article, as was Melissa from Leaky and several other fans.
