Warner Bros. And Niantic Show Off New Harry Potter Game ‘Wizards Unite’

Pokemon GO! was – and still is – one of the most successful mobile games of all time, and when it was announced last year that the game’s devs, Niantic, planned to release a Harry Potter AR game, fans completely lost it.

It’s been a while since we’ve heard any news on the game though, and fans were beginning to wonder what the heck had happened to it.

The Wizard’s Unite website states: “Please resist the urge to panic. Traces of magic are appearing across the Muggle world without warning and in a rather chaotic manner.

“We worry it is only a matter of time before even the most incurious Muggles catch wind of it. We call on all witches and wizards to help contain the Calamity or risk the worst of times since You Know Who. Brush up on your spells, get your wand ready, and enlist immediately.”

Sounds pretty exciting!

Developed by Niantic and Portkey Games and licensed by Warner Bros. the new mobile game is expected to release some time next year.

People are speculating it won’t be too much of a wait though, as the J.K Rowling fandom is already in hype mode thanks to the upcoming Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them: Crimes of Grindlewald movie releasing later this week.
