Harry Potter Mobile Game Coming from Pokemon Go Developer

Harry Potter Augmented-Reality Game From 'Pokemon Go' Maker Set for 2018 Report: Pokemon GO Creator Working On Harry Potter: Wizards Unite

Interactive Entertainment and WB Games to develop the new game.

Interactive and Niantic. Unfortunately, there's not much information floating around as to what kind of game it might be, except for the nebulous release date of "sometime next year". Ingress is more centered on location defense and exploration than capturing Pokemon, so this would make sense for an epic fantasy franchise that pits good against evil.

As TechCrunch reports, Warner Bros. The augmented reality game instantly became popular across the globe after it was released. Stay tuned to our social channels for updates as we work to bring this game to life.

We've got the name, but other details are scarce.

What adventures will Wizards Unite have in store?

David Haddad, President of Warner Bros. Hopefully they are better prepared with Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, because there's no question that the brand has the potential to also attract a massive audience.

And Niantic will surely be hoping the way Pokemon Go captured people's imagination will translate to the world of Harry Potter too. The app became the most successful mobile game in U.S. history - becoming more popular than Tinder, and briefly matching Twitter's popularity. The idea is that it would let players virtually immerse themselves in Rowling's magical world, overlaid on their real-world surroundings via smartphones.

Expect such a game to take advantage of the location database from Niantic's game Ingress and its follow-up Pokemon Go.

Niantic is, once again, developing the game, which will come out next year.
