You could say that the success experienced by Niantic’s Pokémon Go AR game has been downright magical. At least, it had a huge population of mobile gamers spellbound during its first month of launch. It has since seen a decline in activity, but still maintains a dedicated fanbase with continued app support.
Well, magic meets magic for 2018, with Niantic now working on a Harry Potter AR game called “Harry Potter: Wizards Unite”.
Harry Potter: Wizards Unite will be co-developed by Warner Bros. Interactive and its new sub-brand Portkey Games.
We’ve got the name, but other details are scarce. However, we can predict that features which made Pokémon Go a success to be copied over or evolved somewhat.
