It looks like the Pottermore website, ready for launch in five days, could be an MMORPG, which stands for 'Massively multiplayer online role-playing game'.
The speculation is supported by the Pottermore Trademark description as published in Trademarkia.com, which describes it 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.
At the bottom of the site we can see the trademark statement which reinforces the argument: Harry Potter and Pottermore Publishing Rights © J.K. Rowling. Harry Potter characters, names and related indicia are trademarks of and © Warners Bros. Ent. All Rights Reserved.
The first look of the website had triggered a number of Harry Potter fans thinking about the possibility of an exclusive online Harry Potter game. J K Rowling's spoke person told BBC, that the project is not a new book, (which rules out an ebook possibility) and it is not directly related to the final film appearing in the theaters next month.
Rumor mills are churning out more as the world can't wait to see what is brewing behind the curtains of the newly announced website Pottermore. The brilliant purple image currently displayed on the website is rather blank and doesn't point towards any direction, except that the wait will be over in five days.
