Wizards Unite in AR Game

Pokémon Go creator Niantic will release a Harry Potter AR game in 2018

So we can expect that Harry Potter game will also break all records.

Claims that Niantic would make a Harry Potter-themed game were first reported in July 2016 but were dismissed as a hoax, not least because the San Francisco-based developer was still rolling out Pokemon Go at the time. Then, beginning on January 2, HBO will air one film each night starting with the O.G. flick, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, and ending with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2.

Interestingly, the post ends by saying we'll be getting more news on what's coming from Portkey, "really soon" - it's not clear if that applies directly to Niantic's game, or if another title's coming soon.

Similar to Pokemon Go, the Harry Potter; Wizards Unite mobile game will show digital images on top of real-life objects when you view them on a smartphone or tablet.

Niantic said players would find and fight fantasy beasts in real-world neighbourhoods in the smartphone game, which has yet to get a release date.

The game will launch sometime in 2018.

Although details about the game are scarce, Niantic Labs teased the premise in a press release. The only thing we can hope is somehow Niantic works with J.K. Rowling on this app, and sets up a sorting hat situation to determine your "teams" via houses, rather than just choosing what team you're on, like in 'Pokemon Go'.

Potter fans have been told they will have to wait until next year to discover more.

Niantic Labs has enjoyed enormous success by taking on Nintendo's popular "Pokemon" franchise to produce "Pokemon Go".

"But I still don't think they will be essential to the experience".
