'Harry Potter: Wizards Unite' mobile game announced by 'Pokemon GO' maker

'Harry Potter: Wizards Unite' mobile game announced by 'Pokemon GO' maker”

The app developer wizards (pun intended) at Niantic, the company that created Pokemon GO, are in the process of developing Harry Potter: Wizards Unite in partnership with Warner Bros., the studio behind all the movies. Literally, the same as Pokémon Go. More details will be revealed in 2018.

"At Niantic, our goal is to leverage technology to create real world experiences that help people to discover the wonderful, and often magical parts of the world around them", said John Hanke, founder and CEO of Niantic, Inc.

Harry Potter fans will soon be able to immerse themselves in the wizarding world with a new Augmented Reality game.

Gameplay will operate much like Pokémon GO.

In Wizards Unite, players will learn spells while exploring real-world locations, encounter legendary beasts and team up with other players to fight powerful enemies.

When we first covered the game's reveal reports stated that it would be similar to Pokemon Go and Ingress in that it would require players to explore the real world using their phone's Global Positioning System via location-based events and challenges.

Harry Potter: Wizards Unite now has no release date, but the developers set up an official site for the game where fans can sign up to receive updates. Whatever the mechanics of the game, with the Harry Potter franchise extremely large fanbase, it's safe to say there will be a lot of interest in this game. Harry Poter: Wizards Unit will be published by Niantic, and is probably coming some time next year.
