Harry Potter: Wizards Unite mobile game gets trailer, opens for signups


Details have been few and far between over the past year, though the title was expected to release sometime in 2018. The developer behind the game, Niantic, was the creator of Pokémon Go, which has grossed over US$2.01 billion since its release in 2016.

Last year, Niantic - the development team behind Pokémon Go - announced it would be partnering with Warner Bros.to create a brand new augmented reality mobile game - Harry Potter: Wizards Unite. "By exploring real-world neighborhoods and cities across the globe, players will go on adventures, learn and cast spells, discover mysterious artifacts, and encounter legendary beasts and iconic characters". What we do know is that the game will be fully rooted in the magical universe of Harry Potter, although it isn't adapted from any of the existing books or films. The first official teaser trailer for Wizards Unite was shared online, following the series of updates on official social media pages.

The new website also reveals that Wizards Unite will be released in 2019.

"Please resist the urge to panic". But the good news is that more time means a better game and we have a trailer to help pass the time.
