Niantic announces Harry Potter: Wizards Unite will close in January 2022

Niantic is the developer behind hit games like Pokémon GO and Ingress, but another game the company launched in 2017 was Harry Potter: Wizards Unite. The unique selling point of Wizards Unite was that it made use of the same augmented reality technology that the company’s other two games had implemented. However, it clearly wasn’t as popular as the spontaneous summer wonder that Pokémon GO was in 2016, as Niantic has announced that Harry Potter: Wizards Unite will shut down on January 31, 2022.
Niantic has also announced that the game will be taken off of the App Store, Google Play Store, and the Galaxy Store on December 6th, 2021, and players will no longer be able to make in-game purchases. In the meantime, however, the company has announced that there will be a number of gameplay changes that have taken effect from November 2nd, 2021, and will be in place over the coming months until its shutdown. These aim to increase the playability of the game before its shutdown.
