I really hope it's not Turbine doing another MMO. Not a fan.

I'm going to take a wild, uneducated guess and say that it's going to be a social hub like Habbo. I'm just getting that vibe from the logo.

@JohnFordColey

I'd say that's a good estimation. Not that wild at all.

I would bet that the first MMO for Harry Potter world will be something akin to Free Realms.

Curious as anyone to know what Turbine's next MMO might be, but "Pottermore"? Maybe it's a typo and it's supposed to say "Pottergore" or "Potterspore".

@Silverangel

I reaaaally doubt that is a typo hehe. But if it was a typo, the actual name should be Potterbore.

Chances are if a Harry Potter MMO comes out it'll be more of a social game with minigame stuff like Free Realms or that Star Wars one out or whatnot.

I'd still prefer seeing a more immersive experience where you actually get to go through Hogwarts and sort of gain up skills as you take classes, then as you get up in the Years you can specialize more in what to work with, and then they could either have the "cap" be at the 7th year, or let players move on into RL zones or whatnot.

My guess is that it'll be a multiplatform community hub including a mmo type game that is largely social. Books, music, fan art, etc etc. The sign up will be free, but will be driven by micro transactions.

@Nerves Maybe something like Facebook games (Farmville / Cityville ect.), maybe some social online web game where you play for free with your friends and buy some extra things with real money? Who knows! Anyway, we will find out soon ;)

Doesn't the trademark suggest that it's just a social network?

This could be a really cool MMO if they cover all the aspects of HP. I would really like to be a part of the discussion on the creation and definately a beta tester.
