Wizards Unite will reveal that magic is all around us, and allow players to be a part of Harry Potter's rich world, through Niantic's AR + real-world mobile game platform and the franchise expertise of WB Games San Francisco's development and publishing team.

Niantic Labs will once again work with a much-loved property, but this time, it's Harry Potter. The Harry Potter stories have captured imaginations around the globe for more than 20 years.

No specifics on when the game will drop, additional details will be announced in 2018. On that same day, HBO will also be airing the entire series starting at 9:00 AM ET/PT with Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone and ending with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. If you want to watch the movies, you have to either own them on DVD, Blu-ray, or digital; rent them on services like Amazon, Google Play, or YouTube, or hope to catch one of the many Harry Potter marathons that air on Freeform (previously known as ABC Family).

"We are delighted to welcome the Harry Potter films to our catalogue of award-winning original programming and crowd-pleasing theatrical films", said Bruce Grivetti, Executive Vice President, Business Affairs and President, Film Programming.

"Players will learn spells, explore their real world neighborhoods and cities to discover and fight legendary beasts and team up with others to take down powerful enemies", the company said in a statement.

"We look forward to seeing you outside on your next adventure". The working of the game is same as of Pokemon Go.
