Warner Bros Interactive Entetainment and Niantic have finally, officially, spilled the beans on their Harry Potter mobile collaboration. Literally, the same as Pokémon Go.

Following the extreme success of Pokemon GO, Niantic Labs has its latest augmented reality title that will totally have fans of J.K. Rowling's literary works super thrilled. Like Pokemon GO, it's pretty safe to assume that Wizards Unite will have a strong community aspect to it.

The game release is expected in 2018, however, more specific terms are still kept secret. The good news is that there is more than just an AR game in the making.

"By exploring real-world neighbourhoods and cities across the globe, players will go on adventures, learn and cast spells, discover mysterious artifacts, and encounter legendary beasts and iconic characters", said a press release about the new game, according to MobileSyrup.

Fans of the Harry Potter franchise will have a long list of features that they want to see in Harry Potter: Wizards Unite. With Harry Potter: "Wizards Unite, players that have been dreaming of becoming real life Wizards will finally get the chance to experience J.K. Rowling's Wizarding World", reads a post on Niantic Labs' website. Harry Poter: Wizards Unit will be published by Niantic, and is probably coming some time next year.
