Niantic building a Harry Potter game similar to Pokémon Go was rumoured a year ago, when the company noted that it had acquired the rights to the app. Interactive Entertainment, said in a statement. It makes sense seeing as the game is still a ways off from release, as we could be looking at another summer release similar to that of Pokemon Go. It's called Harry Potter: Wizards Unite. According to TechCrunch, the new mobile AR game is slated for a 2018 launch.

Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is one of a new collection of mobile and console games set in the Wizarding World. This gives Niantic a lot more room to get creative with the challenges and environment that it offers users - but it also gives them a lot more potential to mess it up. Considering how much exploring Harry Potter PC games included back in the day, Ingress-styled gameplay can work well with the theme of the game. This is very likely where you will go to pre-register for the game as well. Harry Potter's magical elements mixing in with the Muggle world is already a theme in the books and movies, so we can expect to see that reappear now in AR form. Pictures, have grossed more than $7.7 billion to date worldwide at the box office, making Harry Potter the largest-grossing film franchise in history.
