Games are about to become a lot more intelligent and a lot more immersive as artificial intelligence and virtual reality start to live up to the hype.
Harry Potter Go
As previously mentioned, Pokemon Go was a massive success for Niantic. Now there are numerous rumours flying around that a ‘Harry Potter Go’ game could be in the works.
In theory this could work simply based on the subject matter, there are numerous critters in the Harry Potter world and given the recent release of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, it would certainly help to boost interest from fans.
The rumour mill suggests that J.K. Rowling, Warner Bros and Niantic are in discussions about a possible partnership, but this is all currently speculation.
While it is not certain to happen there is definitely a lot of interest from fans. One online petition has already gained over 100,000 signatures while another has over 61,000. It would seem that this is something that fans want to happen.
