Back in 2016, it was reported that Niantic had plans to create a Harry Potter GO-like mobile game as a follow on to Pokémon GO. It was then reported the whole thing was a hoax and then for a long time nearly nothing was said about it, until this week Niantic revealed the 2016 rumours were true.
Niantic are in fact involved with a mobile Harry Potter game, entitled Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, only so are Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Portkey who are all developing the app together. It will be out in 2018 and is said to take inspiration from Ingress, but that’s not the news this article is covering. You see although Niantic have revealed their next game, they sued a statement on their official site that reaffirms their 100% dedication to Pokémon GO, and tease big news for next week that relate to future improvements. The statement in question can be seen here:
Just like many of you, we’re super excited about Harry Potter: Wizards Unite and are working hard with our partners at Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, and WB Games San Francisco’s development team to bring that to life. However, we–the Pokémon GO development team–want to say that we are 100% committed to creating an ever-changing and growing game that gets our players exploring, meeting each other, and deepening their connection to the Pokémon universe. We’re actively expanding the Pokémon GO development team to build many more amazing features in 2018. Stay tuned for an update next week on upcoming improvements to certain features.
