From the minds that brought you Pokémon GO, Niantic has announced that they are working on an augmented reality mobile game for Harry Potter. We don't know what the official date of the Harry Potter AR game would be, but there is something definitely brewing in the Niantic cauldron.
Rumors of the game's development were shut down a year ago, but now it's officially official according to a report from Tech Crunch. This is likely due in no small part to Niantic's commitment to providing Pokemon Go players with more frequent content updates and regular holiday events. With Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, players that have been dreaming of becoming real life Wizards will finally get the chance to experience J.K. Rowling's Wizarding World. It makes sense seeing as the game is still a ways off from release, as we could be looking at another summer release similar to that of Pokemon Go.
Needless to say, with Harry Potter being the worldwide phenomenon it is, Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is set to explode right from the off. Premium currency in Harry Potter Wizards Unite could be used to buy fancy new tracksuits for your avatar, or other cosmetic whatever.
"With our previous game Ingress we were very communicative with players, and very open". PokeStops let you collect items, experience, Poke Eggs, and more.
