The team behind 'Pokémon Go' is creating a Harry Potter game for smartphones

A Harry Potter game is in production for smartphones, made by the same people who created Pokémon Go. It’s the first game from a new studio dedicated to creating games in the Harry Potter universe.

The game is named “Harry Potter: Wizards Unite,” and it’s described as something very similar to Pokémon Go.

“The game will use state-of-the-art AR mobile technology and allow players to go on adventures, learn and cast spells, discover mysterious artifacts, and encounter legendary beasts and iconic characters as they explore real-world neighbourhoods and cities across the globe,” the press release says.
