The new financing comes after the layoffs were made in December and May. In August last year, Jam City moved from their current location to Culver City into a much larger office. In November, they signed a new partnership of development with Disney and the game Bingo Pop was acquired by them from Ukon Games, a Toronto based studio.

Speaking about the new financing Jam City acquired, CEO and co-founder Chris DeWolfe said this would enable Jam City to further their current position in the world.

So what might this mean for Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery?

Well, it’s completely open for interpretation. Jam City has not made any commitments to any particular game. All they have committed to is growing their standing. But considering we’ve got two rounds of layoffs, a major move, and now a new round of financing. It’s not all cut and dry of what is coming.
