'Harry Potter' version of Pokémon Go to be released next year

We all must remember last year's viral AR game, dubbed as Pokémon Go. This new game will bring the renowned J.K Rowling's Harry Potter and the Wizarding World to life in a gamers' hand.

The team at Niantic are partnering with Warner Bros' mobile games studio in San Fransisco.

"Harry Potter: Wizards Unite" is expected to be released in 2018.

The Boy Who Lived is going to have another stab at conjuring up a video games sales success potion.

Like the two other games, augmented reality will help deliver experiences where players can cast spells, fight beasts and explore real-world areas.

Harry Potter: Wizards Unite uses state-of-the-art augmented reality technology to reveal the magic all around us. Harry Potter is about an unseen magical community hiding just beneath our normal noses waiting to be uncovered if you know how and where to look. A similar rumor past year was thought to be a false alarm at the time, though Niantic did acknowledge that the company had the rights to create such a game.

As TechCrunch reports, Warner Bros. Interactive's recently-created Portkey Games, which means we can expect the game to be true to the wizarding world we saw in the films.

Say what you will about Pokémon Go, it very quickly became a cultural phenomenon.

With this game, we are allowing the passionate, worldwide fan base to experience J.K. Rowling's deeply powerful and imaginative universe in a new, truly immersive way.
The Harry Potter franchise has always been brimming with potential when it comes to video gaming, and it will be interesting to see what kind of projects Portkey Games dreams up for fans.
