Niantic Labs announces Harry Potter: Wizards Unite

Niantic Labs, the developers behind Pokémon Go, have revealed that they’re working on a new AR mobile game called Harry Potter: Wizards Unite.

The game will allow players to become real-life Wizards and experience J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World. You’ll be able to learn spells, fight legendary beasts and team up with other players to defeat powerful enemies.

The company is partnering with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and WB Games San Francisco’s development team to create the new game. It’ll be based on Niantic’s real-world AR gaming platform, which they used for Pokémon Go.

Harry Potter: Wizards Unite will be published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment’s Portkey Games, which is a new games label that is dedicated to creating video game and mobile experiences inspired by J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World.

No release date was announced for Harry Potter: Wizards Unite but more details will be announced in 2018. You can sign up to learn more at the game’s website.
