Niantic Inc famous for their Pokemon GO mobile game, will be releasing their next title Harry Potter: Wizards Unite in 2019.
Harry Potter: Wizards Unite Releases 2019
It was last year when Niantic announced their plans for a mobile game based on the Harry Potter franchise, revealing the title Harry Potter: Wizards Unite. The game is set to be similar to their augmented reality Pokemon GO and will follow the same kind of interaction according to this description:
Players will learn spells, explore their real-world neighborhoods and cities to discover & fight legendary beasts and team up with others to take down powerful enemies.
There has already been a Harry Potter themed mobile game developed by Jam City called Hogwarts Mystery, which received some negative feedback due to paywalls when it was originally launched. Hopefully Niantic doesn’t go down this route. Another HP game is in the works which was leaked a couple of months ago, a AAA RPG title.
The description of Harry Potter: Wizards Unite from Niantic is as follows:
Please resist the urge to panic. Traces of magic are appearing across the Muggle world without warning and in a rather chaotic manner. We worry it is only a matter of time before even the most incurious Muggles catch wind of it. We call on all witches and wizards to help contain the Calamity or risk the worst of times since You Know Who. Brush up on your spells, get your wand ready, and enlist immediately.
As a member of the Statute of Secrecy Task Force (a new task force formed in partnership between the Ministry of Magic and the International Confederation of Wizards) you will hone lightning fast wand reflexes, an ability to sniff out the faintest whiff of magical disorder from afar, and proficiency in advanced casting of multiple spells.
