09 November, 2017, 00:57 | Author: Becky Perry

A new report says that Niantic Labs, the creators of the hit mobile AR game Pokémon GO, are now developing a new AR game called Harry Potter: Wizards Unite for a launch sometime next year.

According to TechCrunch, the game is being co-developed by Warner Bros.

On many players' minds, surely, is whether or not Niantic will be more supportive and responsive to their install base than they were during Pokémon Go.

Wizards Unite is set for a 2018 release date. "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". Upon its release, the game found its way into people's everyday lives, and was a significant, if but brief, pop-culture phenomenon. It plans on hitting the Harry Potter generation with Harry Potter AR game! Hopefully the content updates are handled better than with Niantic's original project, Pokemon Go!

Why sleep deprivation is worse than a hangover
Yet no legal or medical standards exist for identifying overtired drivers on the road the same way we target drunk drivers'. It found that taking getting behind the wheel while sleep-deprived could be just as risky as driving while intoxicated.


Niantic Studios, the same studio behind the augmented reality mobile game Pokemon Go, is now making a Harry Potter augmented reality game.

Pokémon Go is location-based and lets the player see the world through a digital reality, to locate, capture and battle virtual creatures. 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.

Hanke spoke in more detail on the official blog for Niantic Games. As described by Pottermore, "Portkey Games will give Harry Potter fans the chance to be transported into the wizarding world and placed at the centre of their own adventure". Well, Wizards Unite might be here to answer your prayers. We have many questions, and as soon as we get our hands on some footage or a trailer, we'll share that with you straight away.
