Wizards Unite, this AR game is said to release sometime in 2018.

Wizards Unite is the full title of this new augmented reality being co-developed by Warner Bros.

This afternoon Niantic confirmed the existence of their next augmented reality Global Positioning System map-based game: Harry Potter: Wizards Unite. Reported today by Tech Crunch, the new project is another AR game, this time based on the magical world of Harry Potter.

While this app is now official, neither Niantic or Warner Bros. have released any information regarding how the game will play or what its exact premise is.

There is now no release date or launch window given, but there is an official website live that you can visit right here. The company hasn't had the greatest relationship with its Pokémon Go player base, as it rolled out updates and bug fixes months after players complained about them and as some initial users dropped the game.

The game was rumoured earlier in the year but has only now been confirmed, TechCrunch says.

What do you think about the early reveal of Harry Potter: Wizards Unite?

Unfortunately for Harry Potter fans, details about the app's potential gameplay features are few and far between at the moment. Also, like Pokémon Go, it could benefit from the location database built up by Ingress originally (and expanded by the Pokémon title) to incorporate real-world locations into the in-game experience. "The beloved Harry Potter stories have captured imaginations worldwide for more than 20 years and soon we'll turn the fantasy into augmented reality, allowing fans and their friends to become wizards and witches". This is, of course, all speculation on our part, but we wouldn't be surprised if the game lends heavily from Niantic's Pokemon GO.
