Warner Bros. has announced expected Lego Harry Potter: Years 1-4 follow-up Years 5-7. It launches sometime during 2011's fourth quarter - from October to December.

The game covers the latter portion of the boy wizard saga - chunky yawn-fest Order of the Phoenix, tissues-at-the-ready Dumbledore-killing Half-Blood Prince and the final battle-filled Deathly Hallows.

It's out for every console under the sun - Nintendo 3DS, DS, PlayStation Portable, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii - and, interestingly, the Next Generation Portable. Sony is yet to set a firm release date for its new handheld, though this confirms what we knew already - it will be out sometime before the end of the year.

Either that or Warner has said too much and Sony's lawyers are preparing the Cruciatus curse at this very moment.

Lego Harry Potter: Years 5-7 is being developed by franchise veterans TT Games and features all the locations from final books and films, as the series builds to Harry's final confrontation with Voldemort.

Spoilers: Voldemort wins.

Not really.
