Niantic Will Actively Support Pokémon Go Alongside Harry Potter: Wizards Unite
Niantic has reassured fans of Pokémon GO that the newly announced Harry Potter: Wizards Unite will not affect any future content coming to GO.
Earlier this week, Pokémon GO developer Niantic announced that they would be teaming up with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and WB Games to create an augmented reality game based on the Harry Potter universe. The title will be called Harry Potter: Wizards Unite.
Fans of Pokémon GO might be wondering what this new Potter title means for future updates and additions that could come to the game. Niantic reassured fans by saying that they’re “100% committed” to creating an ever-changing experience that’ll continue to “deepen the connection” players have with the Pokémon universe. They’ll continue building “amazing” new features going into 2018 and beyond.
Harry Potter: Wizards Unite will be available exclusively on mobile hardware. The game will use the same AR technology used in previous titles from Niantic. Other details about Wizards Unite are currently very few, but we’ll probably learn more in the coming months closer to the game’s final release.
Pokémon GO was originally released on July 6 last year. You can download it on Android and iOS devices.
