A recent update in JK Rowling’s official website confirms that
indeed, the sixth installment in our favorite series is
entitled “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.” Here’s the text
from the said news article:

Title of Book Six: The Truth

Well, the door opened at last and I showed you the title of book
six – the genuine title, the title that will appear on the published
book, the title I have been using in my head for ages and ages.
Unfortunately, however, the door opened on the very same day
the ‘Pillar of Storgé’ hoaxer struck, which left a lot of Harry
Potter fans bemused as to whether I was having a joke at their
expense by posting another fake title to ‘teach hoaxers a lesson’,
something I certainly wouldn’t do, as it would simply frustrate,
confuse or annoy the 99.9% of you who aren’t hoaxers! I tried to
give a clear hint that the title behind the door was the real one by
making the ‘Toenail’ joke as well (see ‘Rumours’). But just to clear
up matters once and for all…

Information you take directly from this site will be truthful and
accurate (I might occasionally joke, but as time goes on, you’ll
learn to tell when I’m joking). Do not trust anybody else claiming
to have found information on this site that you cannot access,
however seemingly convincing the images they provide to support
their story.

I never post information on the site that I do not want fans to read
immediately. In other words, anybody claiming to have ‘discovered’ a
message that wasn’t due for release yet is lying. There was never
anything meaningful behind the door until the ‘Do Not Disturb’ sign
came off!

The ‘Pillar of Storgé’ was never my title, and I did not change it
at the eleventh hour because I was ‘found out’ (I nearly fell off my
chair giggling when I read this).

I was delighted to see that a hard core of super-bright fans knew
that the real title was once, in the long distant past, a
possibility for ‘Chamber of Secrets’, and from that deduced that it
was genuine. Certain crucial pieces of information in book six were
originally planned for ‘Chamber of Secrets’, but very early on
(first draft of Chamber) I realised that this information’s proper
home was book six. I have said before now that ‘Chamber’ holds some
very important clues to the ultimate end of the series. Not as many
as six, obviously, but there is a link.

Anyway: if you continue to exercise patience, you will find that the
Do Not Disturb Door opens again… and again… giving you further hints
about book six. But as a little bonus, and compensation for having
been messed around by Mr. or Ms. Storgé, I shall tell you one thing
without making you shift any bricks at all: the HBP is neither Harry
nor Voldemort. And that’s all I’m saying on THAT subject until the
book’s published.”
