Pokémon Go developer Niantic's next game will be Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, another augmented-reality smartphone app, due for launch sometime in 2018.

The mechanics of Ingress would actually translate pretty well to the fictional Harry Potter universe, and seems nearly ready-made for a fantasy spell casting coat of paint to replace its science-fiction special forces veneer. The game, made in conjunction with Warner Bros. Interactive and Portkey Games, reports TechCrunch. The outlet points out that there will likely be "significant influence" on Wizards Unite from Ingress, a location-based ARG game from Niantic that gives players the chance to "roam the real world collecting power-ups, defending locations and exploring their environment". As rumors already suggested, additional sources are now confirming that Niantic is attempting to strike gold a second time with the Harry Potter franchise.
