Eight years ago we set out on an adventure to change the way that people view the world. We wanted to create a platform to support real world games. Games that encourage us to get outside, to explore the world, discover new places, make new friends, and get a little bit healthier along the way. We delivered on that vision with our first game, Ingress, which transformed the real world into a landscape for a global game of mystery and intrigue. Pokémon GO came next and we learned a lot about how to scale our platform to support hundreds of millions of players globally. Today, alongside our partners at WB Games, we are excited to bring you Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, the latest title part of the Portkey Games label. Leveraging the full tech stack of the Niantic Real World Platform, Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is the next evolution of real world gaming, pushing the boundaries of mobile augmented reality (AR) to bridge the paper-thin line between the real world and wizarding world.
Starting today, fans of the Wizarding World will be able to officially download Harry Potter: Wizards Unite from the App Store, Google Play or the Galaxy Apps Store. The game is available now in the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand and will continue to roll out globally.
