Harry Potter : Wizards Unite Possible Release Date
Hello fellow Wizards today we will try to crack the code on when to expect the Release of Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, the much anticipated AR Game by Portkey Games, Niantic and Warner Bros.
1.What do we know?
Basically Nothing. There is absolutely dead silence on the actual release date of Wizards Unite. Neither PortkeyGames or Niantic Has said anything about it. Actually no, there was a very generic comment saying “at some point in 2018.”
2. What do we expect?
Well of course we can only speculate at the moment but the most possible release date seems to be June of 2018. Why is that? First and foremost the fact that Wizards Unite will be a Pokemon GO-like game with a map that will be played outside. There is no better period to release such a game than summer. If we want to make it more specific we would bet on a middle-June release. At these dates, Schools will be closed (or ready to) in most countries and weather will be great.
Of course July is an alternative, however since Niantic is involved with the project we expect that they would want to separate the release of HP:WU from the Pokemon GO Anniversary (July 6). Since Niantic will be making their own event at this period (not to mention that they will have a feature release on PoGO), they wouldn’t want to be overshadowed.
There is also the wildcard called August, which although it still has possibilities it might be a little too late, not to mention the fact that many people using this month for vacations.
Earlier? Well an spring release could be possible of course BUT recently another title announced by Portkey Games and Jam City called “Hogwarts Mystery”, which according to Josh Yguado(chief operating officer of Jam City) will be launced in spring. We do not believe that both Harry Potter titles will want to release simultaneously, that is why we believe Wizards Unite will follow Hogwarts Mystery couple months later… aka summert 2018.
