Not much is known about Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, even the mystery teased with a title like "Hogwarts Mystery". Not only is there another Fantastic Beasts movie coming out, but Jam City has just announced that its latest mobile game is Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery.

This time, development duties will be handled by LA based Jam City, who were previously responsible for mobile titles Family Guy: Another Freakin' Mobile Game and Avengers Academy.

Since Harry's first adventure, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, was released in America on September 1, 1998, it has become challenging for media and technology companies to convince Rowling that they will create the best product for the franchise's fans. Indeed, there's more than a few starry-eyed adults who have wished that they had received a magical owl letter of their own and could be whisked away from the mundane world of Muggles and into a life of mystery and magic. Interactive Entertainment has signed a licensing agreement with mobile games studio Jam City that will see the two firms partner to create Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, an official mobile app that will enable players to create their own characters and experience life as a Hogwarts student. But there will be no Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, or Hermione Granger to greet them.
