Harry Potter: Wizards Unite Won't Affect Pokemon Go Development, Niantic Says

Fantastic beasts, wizard adventures and magic spells will come to life in a new "Harry Potter" augmented reality mobile game from Pokemon Go developer Niantic Inc and Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment, the companies said on Wednesday.

In a blog post, Niantic said they are extremely excited about Harry Potter: Wizards Unite like other Harry Potter fans, but they are still committed to Pokemon Go.

"Ingress" was the first augmented reality game released by Niantic in 2012, though it was not as warmly welcomed by players as "Pokemon Go", which still attracts players to this day. Many Pokemon Go fans were wondering if that means Niantic will stop releasing more content for Pokemon Go, while Niantic has good news they will 100% support Pokemon Go for a long time. Sure enough, Niantic is hiring for over 30 different positions, many of which are based in Bellevue, Washington, where Niantic works with The Pokemon Company on Pokemon Go.

Rumors about a possible "Harry Potter" augmented reality game began circulating in July a year ago, but they were immediately denied.

Niantic promises more features will be added to Pokemon Go in 2018, with updates coming as soon as next week. In an interview with BBC, IHS Markit consultancy's Piers Harding-Rolls believes that the upcoming "Harry Potter" game was promising and would be an apt "follow-up" to "Pokemon Go".
