The AR mobile title Harry Potter: Wizards Unite will be similar to Pokemon GO, as players will be wandering around the streets learning spells, and to discover and fight legendary beasts from Harry Potter lore.
Pokemon GO is easily one of the biggest games of recent memory, and now developer Niantic has officially announced their followup.
The makers of the once immensely popular Pokémon Go are now making a Harry Potter AR game, Tech Crunch reported today. Given the timeline of this game, however vague it is, it's possible that much of the game has already been completed.
There is actually a collection of Pokemon games on mobile now. We've reached out for comment from both Warner Bros.
Wizards Unite will utilize Niantic's real-world mapping to "reveal that magic is all around us".
So named because Portkeys transport wizards from place to place, Portkey Games will give Harry Potter fans the chance to be transported into the wizarding world and placed at the centre of their own adventure.
Hopefully additional details come down the pipeline in the next few weeks so we know exactly how we'll be spending most of our time when the game does drop.
There is now no release date or launch window given, but there is an official website live that you can visit right here. We'll update when they respond.

There have been rumors of a Niantic-made Harry Potter AR game for over year, but they were debunked as "fake news" published on a satire website.
Wizard's Unite is supposedly the next project that Niantic will release.
However, it is easy to speculate that the game will require players to assume the role of wizards living in our humble muggle world.
Pokémon Go uses augmented reality through your phone's camera.
