'Pokemon Go' creator set to release 'Wizards Unite' in 2018

The map in Pokemon Go

As Niantic have seen such success using AR for Pokemon Go, they've brought this technology to their upcoming game.

The app developer wizards (pun intended) at Niantic, the company that created Pokemon GO, are in the process of developing Harry Potter: Wizards Unite in partnership with Warner Bros., the studio behind all the movies.

Instead of using inspiration from the popular anime series Pokemon, the creators are targeting another cultural icon with a big fan base - Harry Potter. On January 1, 2018, the network will air a chronological Harry Potter marathon.

HBO now has the streaming rights for the Harry Potter universe film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and has recently streamed Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, but not at the same time.

Revealed today in a blog post on the Pottermore website, Portkey's games "will feature both new characters and - excitingly - could feature familiar characters "at different points in their lives" from the Harry Potter stories". In the game, players catch Pokémon that appear on a real-world map, while interacting with gyms pinned to real world places.

"Players will learn spells, explore their real world neighbourhoods and cities to discover & fight legendary beasts and team up with others to take down powerful enemies".

"We are delighted to welcome the Harry Potter films to our catalogue of award-winning original programming and crowd-pleasing theatrical films", said Bruce Grivetti, Executive Vice President, Business Affairs and President, Film Programming.

"We look forward to seeing you outside on your next adventure".
