Pokemon Go developer’s next project is a Harry Potter AR game

Remember all that time you spent chasing virtual Pokemon around your neighbourhood? Niantic remembers. And the developer is hoping you’ll do the same, in some form, for a Harry Potter game with a similar augmented reality base concept. With a fan base the size of the Harry Potter crowd, this could be huge.

It’s called Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, and it’s going to be shite. Oh, okay, I’ve just been told that that’s conjecture and I can’t really say that. Right, lets try again. It’s called Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, and it might be quite nice. But it will probably be shite. Anyway, it’s being c0-developed by Warner Bros. Interactive and Portkey Games – if you know your Dumbledore from your Slytherins, you’ll know that a Portkey is a sort of transportation device within the Potter universe.

We don’t know much about the game, really, except that it’s in the works and that Harry Potter: Wizards Unite will be with us sometime in 2018. Be prepared to see grown-ups hopping up and down their driveways on pretend broomsticks, I reckon.
