  • Report Pokemon GO Creator Working On Harry Potter Wizards Unite

Wizards Unite is the next augmented reality (AR) game coming from Pokemon Go developer Nianitc, Warner Bros. and Niantic announced this afternoon. Per Tech Crunch, it appears as though Niantic is hoping that lightning will strike twice, reportedly developing a similar game based on the popular Harry Potter wizarding world.

President of Warner Bros. Interactive and its new sub brand called Portkey Games.

Proper post-release support or not, I think it's a safe bet that Harry Potter: Wizards Unite will be one of the biggest stories of 2018.

There have been many Harry Potter console games over the years, but none recently.

Italy Investigates Deaths Of 26 Nigerian Women At Mediterranean Sea
Speculations are that the deceased women might have been sexually abused and killed as they tried to cross the Mediterranean . Since the collapse of Moammar Gaddafi's regime, the number of migrants crossing the Mediterranean from Libya has skyrocketed.

Pokémon GO brought that vision to the world at unprecedented scale and served as a catalyst for the further development of the Niantic platform.

Whatever the case, Harry Potter is positively rife with plenty of different characters, subjects, spells, items, and creatures to explore in a mobile game. Hopefully the content updates are handled better than with Niantic's original project, Pokemon Go!

Details on the game are scant, but it expected to allow players to blend the real world around them with the fantasy of J.K. Rowling's wizard-laden universe. You can also stare at the logo for the game, because there isn't much else to go on. Interactive are tackling the world of "Harry Potter" in the same fashion. The app became the most successful mobile game in USA history - becoming more popular than Tinder, and briefly matching Twitter's popularity.

If the name of the company sounds familiar then you are not wrong as this is the same company that developed the internet sensation of 2017, Pokémon Go.
