Interactive Entertainment are teaming up to develop Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, an augmented reality mobile game inspired by Rowling's Wizarding World. Subtitled Wizards Unite, the title is planned for release next year and will be co-developed by a new arm of Warner Bros.

President of Warner Bros. Interactive and its brand new sub-brand Portkey Games. Then, in 2016, through a partnership with Nintendo and The Pokemon Company, Niantic released the popular AR game Pokemon Go, with Niantic serving as the app's developer.

There have been many Harry Potter console games over the years, but none recently. But regardless the gameplay style, one thing is for certain that Niantic has sufficient location data from the original Ingress game and later the Pokémon Go.

Niantic, the company that makes the hit mobile game "Pokémon Go", is now making a smartphone game set in the universe of J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter. The game will take advantage of the technology featured in Pokemon Go and Ingress and allow you to travel around while discovering mysterious artifacts, learning to cast spells, and encountering legendary beasts and characters. Hopefully there's more to Wizards Unite than a simple visual swap where Pikachu becomes a Griffon.

The new game, he goes on to write, will give "players that have been dreaming of becoming real life Wizards will finally get the chance to experience J.K. Rowling's Wizarding World". Who knows, maybe you'll also be able to pre-register for Harry Potter: Wizards Unite as well through the website in the future. PokeStops let you collect items, experience, Poke Eggs, and more.
