Anyone who has been around long enough to watch – or read – the entirety of the magical world of Harry Potter will be excited with this news.
According to Niantic Labs, the game developer behind the popular Pokemon GO game that was unveiled last year and sent everyone crazy, there’s a new AR game in the works going by the name Harry Potter: Wizards Unite. While the company has not mentioned the expected launch date, it is thought to be somewhere next year.
Niantic Labs notes that the new Harry Potter game will be developed in conjunction with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and WB Games San Francisco’s developers’ team. Even though Niantic Labs has indeed confirmed that this game is in development, the exact details remain scarce. The company says that “players will learn spells, explore their real-world neighborhoods and cities to discover & fight legendary beasts and team up with others to take down powerful enemies.”
Given the huge success the likes of Pokemon GO and Ingress have had, it’s easy to see the upcoming Harry Potter: Wizards Unite game dominating the 2018 mobile AR industry, especially considering how good Niantic Labs is in this area.
