Speculanews WU

The Wizards Unite AR Game When the news aren't enough, we must rely on #Speculanews Click To Tweet The WU Developers niantic logoportkey games logo Back in October 2017 Niantic, the Company responsible for Pok√©mon Go, announced they were working on a new AR Game along with Portkey Games. The game, set to release in 2018, would take place in the Harry Potter Universe. This news set every last Potterhead’s heart aflutter. Then somebody decided it would be a great idea to cast a Silencio Charm all over the Game news. This lasted for just over a year. Some of the wizarding world’s best curse-breakers tried to make it past the Charm and pry some information from the companies, but the magic was too strong. Snippets and Teasers and Frustrated Fans Late last year, we finally got a glimpse of what the game would look like. And a new release date: 2019 harry-potter-wizards-unite-logo First, the new Logo was released. You can read our post about it right here: –Wizards Unite Logo ands its three very familiar wands Then a short trailer showing off the new Task Force and asking us to enlist –Task Force video: on-site training And an even shorter glimpse of some out-of-control Nimbus 2000 –Nimbus Video: Riderless Brooms in the Muggle world Since then, it’s been radio-silence once more, although there have been hints that a third video is on its way. That’s where our Speculanews comes in There is so little official information about the Wizards Unite game that sometimes all we can do is take what they tell us and work on our Speculanews. Click To Tweet Sometimes we will share rumours, like¬†Samsung’s new deal with Niantic possibly meaning WU will be exclusive for Samsung phones. (Did Samsung call dibs on WU?) Other times, we will share news about new technology in development and imagine what it could mean for the game. (AR Game News: Is multiplayer duelling on its way?) Or perhaps delve into our hopes for the game. (Magic Wands for Wizards Unite?) Whatever shape our Speculanews take, we will be sure to share them with you. We hope you will do the same and leave a comment with your own hopes and ideas, and any question you might have for us. Until then, let’s keep up the Speculanews together. Accio Wizards Unite!

Wizards Unite Gameplay (Speculation, Part 1)

Finally, it seems we have a tentative release window thanks to Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara: Summer, 2019. This probably refers to the official Wizards Unite download, and not a Beta version.
