Pokemon GO is now a global phenomenon. Despite the technical glitches and the bugs, this app has been downloaded by over 100 million people (and counting) worldwide. It shattered many records and took the augmented reality to a whole new dimension. Since the success of Pokemon GO, rumors and fake spin-offs of the mobile game have haunted the mobile games company and the developer of Pokemon GO – Niantic Inc.
Harry Potter GO has been on the top of fan requests. This has created such an euphoria the world over that recently news about Niantic launching Harry Potter version of Pokemon GO caught everybody’s attention. To everybody’s disappointment, it was only realized later that this news was fake. And this made the Potter fans more eager to vouch for the development of Harry Potter GO. The buzz around development of Harry Potter GO has even inspired Stargaze Media to create a trailer.
So far, the magic world of witchcraft and wizardry has only been recreated in the famous series of Harry Potter movies. How would it be to experience the magical world of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry on your mobile phone? How wonderful would it be if you can go around casting spells and playing a game of Quidditch using augmented reality? Sounds fun! As reported by thebitbag, a petition for Harry Potter GO is ongoing, where you can join and sign the petition. The number of signers now stands at 50,000+. If you are a Harry Potter fan and want Warner Brothers, Niantic to start working on the development of Harry Potter Go, head straight to the petition page and sign the petition!
The homepage of the petition says – “Pokémon Go is a fun new game, where you can catch Pokémon in real life. You know what would be even better? HARRY POTTER IN REAL LIFE. Nitwit. Blubber. Oddment. Tweak. The possibilities are endless. In a Harry Potter augmented reality game, you could cast spells in real life. Accio Firebolt! And have a wizard duel with your friends, expelliarmus could disable their app for a few seconds! Who is your second?”
If the petition gets support from over a million fans, Niantic will have a hard time turning down the request. If Niantic does start working on Harry Potter GO, it may take another 7-8 years before we get to play the game. Remember, Pokemon GO actually took 20 years – yes, you read that right – 20 years to develop. So 7-8 years for Harry Potter GO is quite optimistic.
While we wait to see how this news develops, you can watch the (unofficial) trailer of Harry Potter GO, created by Stargaze Media –
