Okay so I’ll be honest I never got into the whole Pokemon Go thing because I never liked Pokemon as a kid! I did love that it got people out of their house, it seemed like everyone in our city was out trying to “catch em all”
There were rumours right after this became HUGE in the summer of 2016 that there could be a similar game, but for Harry Potter fans! Those rumours were shot down right away by the creators of Pokemon Go, but now…it’s actually happening!

So apparently this is coming out in 2018, we just don’t know exactly WHEN yet. You can check out their facebook page or harrypotterwizardsunite.com to keep tabs on when we get to play. Here’s the official statement that came out today
“We’re incredibly excited to announce this next step in the evolution of AR mobile entertainment. 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. Players will learn spells, explore their real world neighborhoods and cities to discover & fight legendary beasts and team up with others to take down powerful enemies. We’re thrilled to partner with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, and WB Games San Francisco’s development team to bring this magical and beloved series to life in a brand new way. Harry Potter: Wizards Unite will leverage the full stack of the Niantic Platform while also providing an opportunity to pioneer all new technology and gameplay mechanics.”
