Niantic’s augmented reality-powered Pokemon Go became an instant hit globally. There has been a lot of speculation over the past few months about the next AR-powered game from the developer. Niantic recently confirmed that it’s developing a Harry Potter game. The developer has now confirmed that just because the Harry Potter game is in the pipeline, it doesn’t mean that Niantic is going to end support for Pokemon Go.

Niantic confirmed earlier this week that it’s teaming up with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and WB Games to develop an augmented reality game called Harry Potter: Wizards Unite.

The developer also confirmed that this upcoming title will be released exclusively for mobile devices. It’s going to use the same augmented reality technology that we’ve seen in previous Niantic games. The developer has revealed no further details about the title so far.

Pokemon Go fans might have been worried after the announcement that perhaps Niantic will stop focusing on the title as it diverts significant time and resources to the Harry Potter game. Niantic has reassured Pokemon Go fans that it’s “100% committed” to the title and that it’s going to continue to build new features for Pokemon Go that will be released in 2018 and beyond.
