The Wizards Unite AR Game
The WU Developers
Back in October 2017 Niantic, the Company responsible for Pokémon 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
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
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!
