The Harry Potter AR Game Is Delayed Until 2019

Niantic's next game will take fans from the nostalgia of catching Pokemon to the nostalgia of visiting the wizarding world of Harry Potter.

Niantic and WB Games surprised everyone this morning by dropping the first trailer for Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, the spiritual successor to the world-shatteringly popular Pokemon GO.

Sadly there's no magic spell to make the time fly by faster, but the premise of Harry Potter: Wizards Unite makes it sounds like it's worth the wait. A trailer for an unannounced AAA Harry Potter game was leaked a few months back. Sure, you can visit the Harry Potter world at the Universal Studios theme park in Florida but next year, there will be a much more affordable way to experience the magic of the franchise in reality.

"Please resist the urge to panic".

Harry Potter: Wizards Unite brings the fun of Pokemon Go to the iconic Warner Bros. franchise. Pottermore also pointed out that the "S" in "Wizards" is created to look like the one in the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them movie logo, which would make sense since the early Niantic announcement did mention fighting various sorts of beasts alone or with other players. Before disappearing, she casts a spell that leaves a poster on the wall, which warns that "the Wizarding World is at risk of exposure".

Early signup is available now through the game's website, which tells future players to "brush up on your spells, get your wand ready, and enlist immediately".

However, the Wizards Unite website referenced at the end of the trailer reveals that players will be part of the 'Statute of Secrecy Task Force, ' "a new task force formed in partnership between the Ministry of Magic and the International Confederation of Wizards".
