Pokemon Go creators now making a Harry Potter Augmented Reality game

The moment many Potterheads have been waiting for has finally arrived!

Very few games could hope to dethrone Pokémon GO, but Harry Potter Wizards Unite just might.

Niantic Labs, the makers of the Pokémon-themed augmented reality game, are now working on one inspired by Harry Potter, Entertainment Weekly reports.

Niantic announced that it will team up with Warner Bros.

Niantic's Pokemon Go turned the mobile gaming world upside down previous year, as millions of players tried to "catch 'em all", and escape to the wilderness to chase Pokemon hiding out in the real world. Fans of J.K. Rowling's literary works, rejoice, because Harry Potter: Wizards Unite will let you step into the wizarding world via AR (just like I know you all have always dreamed). It also means there will be a resurgence of people playing the games outside, which, as we learned last time when 'Pokemon Go' was launched, could cause a little bit of chaos, not to mention a lot of angry or annoyed adults who call the cops on players because they've lost their sense of magic. And luckily, we won't have to wait too long to get virtually ~sorted~ and start turning our smartphones into wands, because the game is tentatively set for a 2018 release, which is right around the corner.

"Wizards Unite" will bring author J.K. Rowling's Wizarding World to mobile phones and use augmented reality (AR) to create a real-world scavenger hunt, allow players to cast spells, find artifacts, team up and encounter magical beasts and characters from the popular book series.

In fact, some die-hard fans actually took the movie to heart, going as far as buying an owl of their own, much like Harry Potter's pet Hedwig.
