Nearly 50,000 fans so far have petitioned for a Harry Potter version of the augmented reality app game “Pokemon Go.” Did it work?
One of Niantic’s senior developers said to JTHX News:
“We have acquired the rights for the app. The demand for this title was absolutely insane, so we figured we’d give it a shot. If we’re lucky we might see a launch by early 2017, but it’s hard to tell this early in the project.
We want to do something with schools of witchcraft and wizardry, similar to Pokéstops in Pokemon GO. As well as a quest system, and possibly large scale completely interactive events, but no promises. That’s all I can say.”
Sounded promising! However, The Telegraph UK posted the following “No Go: Harry Potter version of Pokemon Go isn’t happening any time soon” which states that JTHX News may not be a reliable source. Bummer.
