“Warner Bros. Announces Harry Potter: Quidditch Champions Game”


Warner Bros. has recently announced the development of a new Harry Potter game called Harry Potter: Quidditch Champions, a competitive multiplayer game based on the fictional sport made popular by the Harry Potter series.

The game is being developed by Portkey Games, and while not much is known about its release date or the platforms it will be available on, it has been in development for several years.

The game’s website is relatively empty at the moment, with only a portal for sign-ups for play testers and a detailed FAQ page that highlights the involvement of J.K. Rowling, the creator of the Harry Potter universe.

Rowling has been known to make transphobic comments, referring to trans women as “predators” and advocating for their exclusion from “single gender” spaces. While the FAQ doesn’t delve into this topic, it does confirm that the game has been in development for several years.

Interestingly, the sports league based on Quidditch had to change its name to Quadball to avoid legal issues with Warner Bros. and to distance itself from Rowling’s transphobic views.

It remains to be seen if Quidditch Champions will take place in the same era as the upcoming Hogwarts Legacy game, which is set hundreds of years before the events of the books.

Despite the controversy surrounding Rowling’s views and their impact on the trans community, the Harry Potter franchise remains hugely popular. HBO Max recently announced that it has ordered a 10-year-long series based on the books, which will feature Rowling’s involvement.

When asked about Rowling’s transphobic comments and how they might affect the new series, HBO Chair Casey Bloys did not address the issue directly but confirmed that Rowling would be involved.

In conclusion, while the Harry Potter franchise continues to thrive, its creator’s controversial views on trans people have caused significant harm to the trans community.

The release of Quidditch Champions and the upcoming HBO Max series may generate excitement among fans, but it’s important to remember the impact of Rowling’s comments and to take steps to support trans people and combat transphobia in all its forms
