Next Harry Potter delayed to summer 09

Half Blood Prince pushed back to align with movie delay

The Harry Potter And the Half-Blood Prince game has been delayed to "summer 2009", EA has said.

This brings the game in line with the film, which was planned for release this year but will now launch summer '09.

EA promises it'll be worth the wait, though.

"We are creating an immersive game experience that Potter fans around the world will really enjoy playing as they fly and duel their way through the story of the film. The game will feature new Wii gestures and increased gameplay capabilities across all of the platforms," said Robert Nashak, Vice President EA Casual Studios.
