“Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery” Celebrating Second Anniversary
This Saturday, April 25, marks a special anniversary for Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery fans since it’s the second anniversary of the release of the mobile game. Jam City, the game’s developer, has revealed that players have logged over 35 billion gameplay minutes since its launch two years ago. Fans have explored the grounds of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, played over 50 million Quidditch matches, cast 2 billion wizarding spells, and completed over 2 million OWL exams.
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment published Hogwarts Mystery under the Portkey Games label in 2018. Once the game was released, it quickly became the #1 most downloaded mobile game in over 40 countries, including the United States. This immersive role-playing game is doing something extraordinary in honor of its second anniversary by inviting players to get creative for a chance to see their work live in gameplay.
Submissions will open on April 25, and fans are being called to create an original costume design that incorporates elements from all four Hogwarts Houses. Out of all the submissions, the developers will choose three finalists, and the fans will choose the winning design. Keep an eye out on the social media channels for Hogwarts Mystery for the official rules of the contest, but it has been revealed that the winning design is expected to be included in the game this fall. If you’ve been out of practice on the game for a while and want to get back to playing, get yourself up to speed with these wizarding world game updates.
To show even more love for fans of the game, all players will receive the gift of a digital party onesie outfit with House-specific slippers on April 25. House common rooms will also be decorated with a party theme, featuring confetti!
