Pokemon Go developer making Harry Potter game

Another AR mobile game where you explore and collect. Whodathunk?

Pokemon Go developer Niantic has done a deal with Warner Bros to produce a new augmented reality mobile game set in the Harry Potter universe.

According to a post on the studio's blog, Harry Potter: Wizards Unite will see players learn spells and explore their real-world neighborhoods and cities to discover and fight legendary beasts.

You'll also be able to team up with others to take down powerful enemies.

Niantic is working on the game alongside WB Games San Francisco and it will of course take advantage of the Niantic Platform that drives Pokemon Go.

There's no word on when Harry Potter: Wizards Unite will be released, but Niantic said it will keep fans up to date through social channels.

Now he roams the earth, but will always have a home here at AllGamers. You can try and raise him from his deep, abyssal slumber through tom.bramwell@allgamers.com or he's also on Twitter.
