Disney, Time Warner Likely To Capitalize On Augmented Reality; Pokémon GO Prompts Other Game Proposals

Disney, Time Warner Likely To Capitalize On Augmented Reality; Pokémon GO Prompts Other Game Proposals - NINTENDO CO LTD ADR NTDOY, Walt Disney Company The NYSE:DIS

Now that Nintendo Co., Ltd (ADR) NTDOY 4% has doubled in less than two weeks from Pokémon GO's viral popularity, other companies have taken notice and will likely capitalize on the revolutionary trend.

Walt Disney Co DIS 0.71% and Time Warner Inc TWX 0.19% are potential players in the industry, with their arsenal of franchises and popular characters, according to a recent Seeking Alpha piece.

Currently, there is an online petition to create a "Harry Potter" augmented reality game, which would certainly game a lot of traction with its massive following. Movie studios could also revitalize their old franchises by creating AR games.

A few other proposed AR games include:

  • "The Godfather"
  • "Blade Runner"
  • "Star Wars"
  • "Hunger Games"
