Harry Potter fans were mystified yesterday as a new Harry Potter website popped up that simply stated “Pottermore Coming Soon…”. It has been suggested that the new site will be the home of the new Harry Potter MMORPG, however we won’t know for sure until next Thursday when the count-down clock reaches zero.
At the bottom of the site we can see the trademark statement. “Harry Potter characters, names and related indicia are trademarks of and © Warners Bros. Ent. All Rights Reserved”. Looking up the trademark’s description of service we see the trademark Pottermore was described as,
Providing multiple-user access to a global computer information network; providing on-line chat rooms and electronic bulletin boards for transmission of messages among users in the field of general interest; providing on-line communications links which transfer the web site user to other local and global web pages; providing on-line facilities for real-time interaction with other computer users concerning topics of general interest
If this isn’t the Harry Potter MMORPG I would be very surprised considering the two statements that I bolded in the description. What do you guys think, is Pottermore the long rumored Harry Potter MMO?
