Harry Potter Wizards Unite Has Second-Best AR Game First Month

As I’m sure most of us might have expected, Harry Potter Wizards Unite has become the second-biggest AR game when it comes to earnings in the first month. The game pulled in twelve million dollars in that window. Not bad at all. However, it doesn’t come remotely close to the first month earnings of Pokemon Go, which amounted to an astounding three hundred million dollars.

After the astronomical success of Pokemon Go, it makes sense that everybody wanted to make money from AR games, too. And, to my completely zero surprise, according to Sensor Tower, Harry Potter Wizards Unite has risen through the ranks to become the second-biggest AR game in its first month, with twelve million dollars earned. It just barely beat Jurassic World Alive, which made just over ten million. The Walking Dead one, in fourth place, made just under four million, and Ghostbusters World, which I’ve never even heard of somehow, made a paltry two hundred thousand bucks.

Now, you might be thinking to yourself; that’s all well and good, but how does it fare in comparison to the king of the hill, Pokemon Go? Well, as it turns out, there’s quite the drop-off between first and second place. Pokemon Go has made three hundred million dollars in its first month. Twelve million kinda pales when you put it next to that, doesn’t it? Sure, at some point in the future, if a miracle occurs, Wizards Unite might rise to those numbers, but I really don’t consider it very likely. From where I’m standing, there can be only one.

Harry Potter Wizards Unite came out on June 21st, 2019. In case you’re new to the game, or are having problems with it, check out some of our Wizards Unite guides. Among other, we’ve got Runestones – How They Work & Where to Find Them and How to Complete Trace in Different Countries.
