The Harry Potter game would have utilize an "disconnected/on the web" model where players would be sent actual prizes to oblige their in-game accomplishments, evidently.

The game progressed to the beta transformative phase, Salzer said, yet EA at last reassessed. "EA was going through certain progressions around then, and they simply didn't have the foggiest idea, or adequately accept, that that IP would have a time span of usability longer than a little while," Salzer clarified.

EA was the previous privileges holder for the Harry Potter game permit and caused numerous To harry Potter games before the permit moved to Warner Bros., which presently makes Harry Potter games through its Portkey name.
