Harry Potter: Wizards Unite - What's the story on Niantic's next AR game?

'Pokemon Go' creators to release 'Harry Potter' mobile game in 2018

Interactive Entertainment's Portkey Games, a new games label dedicated to creating video game and mobile experiences inspired by J.K. Rowling's Wizarding World.

Last year, Niantic introduced Pokémon GO, an augmented reality (AR) game for Android and iOS that let players walk around town catching Pokémon.

Bradford Hornsby is an editor, music writer, web producer, and pop culture blogger for CBS stations in the San Francisco Bay Area. TechCrunch said Niantic is building the game so that it's similar to Pokémon Go (in that it will draw from the location database originally built up by the Niantic game Ingress).

Do you expect Harry Potter: Wizard's Unite to capture the nation's attention in the same way that Pokemon GO did?

Pokemon GO took the world by storm past year by combining a beloved franchise with a simple and addictive mobile game mechanic. Reported today by Tech Crunch, the new project is another AR game, this time based on the magical world of Harry Potter.

Merlin's beard! Harry Potter is about to make a serious comeback - on our mobile phones. In that game, players explore the real world with their smartphones and defend certain locations while collecting power-ups. The app became the most successful mobile game in U.S. history - becoming more popular than Tinder, and briefly matching Twitter's popularity. If you want to be among the first to know more when additional details are revealed in 2018, you can sign up on the Wizards Unite website. An official release date however is yet to be announced.

However, it is easy to speculate that the game will require players to assume the role of wizards living in our humble muggle world.
