Soon, There Will Be A Harry Potter Version Of Pokemon Go

Niantic Labs had tremendous success with Pokémon Go, which paired their expertise in building location-based augmented reality mobile experiences with a top-flight IP with a ravenous fan base. Niantic Labs are now taking things a step further and are building a new AR title called Harry Potter: Wizards Unite. Harry Potter: Wizards Unite will leverage the full stack of the Niantic Platform while also providing an opportunity to pioneer all new technology and gameplay mechanics.

A "Harry Potter" game is in production for smartphones, made by the same people who created Pokémon Go.

Wizards Unite is set for a 2018 release date. For the uninitiated, Portkey is a reference to a magical item in the Potter-verse that allows you to teleport using an everyday item like a hair brush. You can also stare at the logo for the game, because there isn't much else to go on. The game has earned an estimated $1.5 billion to $2 billion. Rowling has been named the world's richest author with a net worth of $1 billion according to Time. "With our previous game Ingress we were very communicative with players, and very open".

I never ran away from them. "We're gonna finally fix Route 28", Roem said from a party in Gainesville where she declared victory. Roem's victory still came as a surprise to many, though she won by almost 10 percent.

Merlin's beard! Harry Potter is about to make a serious comeback - on our mobile phones. Variety reports that the game was downloaded more than 750 million times in its first year.

Pokemon Go recently changed its Raid Boss list. While it fell in popularity just a bit when Niantic failed to introduce significant content updates in a timely manner, the app still boasts a rather large user base and is reportedly still quite lucrative.

Niantic is regarded as the leader in the augmented reality gaming space.
