Potter MMORPG confirmed by WB VP of Marketing

Yesterday we told you about an e-mail from Warner Brothers concerning the possibility of a Harry Potter online game. We also reminded you that there was one being developed by EA several years ago until it was cancelled.

Today, Snitch Seeker has confirmed to us the source of the e-mail: Warner Brothers Vice President of Marketing Sandy Yi. She sent Snitch Seeker an e-mail similar to Pottersphere's:

The notion of creating a Harry Potter multi-player online role playing game is something that we've been discussing at Warner Bros. for a number of years and continue to explore. We are currently investigating the possibility of creating our own MMORPG but unfortunately do not have any further details to share at this time.

So, this DOES confirm that Warner Brothers is working on some sort of online Potter game that could be similar to games like World of Warcraft, The Sims Online, or Second Life. It's doubtful we'll hear any more about this for a while, but stay tuned!
