    Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is to be released under new label Portkey Games – creators of a series of games inspired by J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World.

    Earlier today, we announced that Warner. Bros Interactive Entertainment are bringing out a new collection of mobile games and console games set in the wizarding world, under the new label Portkey Games. Now, say hello to one of the games to be released from the label: Harry Potter: Wizards Unite.

    Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, launch date to be announced, will use state-of-the-art augmented reality technology on smartphones, so a player can view the real world through a wizarding world lens.

    The game encourages you to step outside with your phone, explore your local surroundings and take part in a series of adventures, such as searching for magical creatures and bumping into iconic wizarding world characters along the way. Crikey. Who knows who you’ll spot in your local park? You’ll also be able to cast spells, discover mysterious artefacts, and build up your very own, illustrious wizarding career. Yep, we can definitely get on board with this.

    Harry Potter: Wizards Unite comes from the combined minds of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Niantic Inc., a company that builds real-world experiences for mobile games. David Haddad, President of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, is excited about fusing the real world with the magical.

    ‘With this game, we are allowing the passionate, worldwide fan base to explore J.K. Rowling’s deeply powerful and imaginative universe in a new, truly immersive way,’ he says.

    ‘It is wonderful to have Niantic’s remarkable augmented reality expertise as we develop this incredibly rich wizarding world for players to explore in their everyday lives.’

    Exploring the wizarding world inside the real world? Suffice it to say, we are looking forward to this. And remember, this will only be one of many new games to come. For more information on Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, have a look at their new website.

    Also, be sure to follow Harry Potter: Wizards Unite updates on Facebook and Twitter to keep up to speed all the way. And if you want to learn more about Portkey Games itself, have a gander here.

    More details about Harry Potter: Wizards Unite will be announced in 2018.

    I am a huge fan of the Harry Potter series (books and films) and I'm totally hyped for this game. I'm not that satisfied with Niantic Labs concerning Pokemon Go, but I can't help but to look forward to this game. Although I think it'll have the same result as Pokemon Go.

    Niantic is going to give the project to a subdivision of theirs, so probably it's not going to interfere with pogo. hopefully.

    I meant I'm not that satisfied with the work Niantic has done with PoGo. It could be much better, and it's not that beneficial for everyone in the world.

    I agree but it's a very nice idea, I love the Harry Potter universe, and I hope they don't mess it up.

    Excited to hear that this will be developed by fans of the franchise themselves too. As a huge HP fan, I'm pretty excited for this. :D

    indeed! Also AR is such a brilliant technology, can't wait to see it applied in more and more and more!
    I read about this a while ago, pretty hyped! I loved the concept of pokemon go (though it could have been better realized). Gotta consider the fact that is a first attempt, i wouldn't be surprise if this game would be much better as they can learn from niantic labs mistakes
