Pokemon Go, who? Warner Bros has the next best thing coming: a Harry Potter interactive game that will bring all fans together.
Warner Bros Entertainment has announced that their Harry Potter mobile game, Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, will be out sometime this summer.
The game is being developed by WB Games in San Francisco with the creators of Pokemon Go, Niantic, and was announced late last year with a trailer of what fans can expect.
Warner Bros Entertainment CEO, Kevin Tsujihara, recently talked with LA Times about the new technology projects the company is exploring, with him mentioning the upcoming Harry Potter game.
“The one that’s the closest is this Harry Potter: Wizards Unite [augmented reality] video game project coming out this summer from Niantic, the maker of Pokemon Go,” Tsujihara said. “That’s a world where, clearly, 5G and faster connectivity with a mobile device is going to make that game better.”
Obviously a summer release date would mean that users could go out and use the app more, as schools are let off.
The website has revealed little spoilers of what fans can expect to see on the app, but their Twitter page has been posting about it more frequently.
