Although the craze has died down, when Pokémon Go initially dropped, virtually everyone was walking around trying to collect 'em all. As a followup, Niantic is said to be launching a somewhat similar Harry Potter AR game in 2018, co-developed by Warner Bros. Interactive and its new sub-brand, Portkey Games.

Rumors of a Harry Potter Niantic title began to circulate last year, although they were quickly rebuffed. Now, however, the app is official, albeit details surrounding the game are slim. Expectantly, it will be fairly similar to that of Pokémon Go, encouraging users to explore, collect various items and defend locations.

As it stands, this is all we have on the upcoming Harry Potter AR game from Niantic, but be sure to check back with us for more.
