"Explore real-world neighborhoods and cities to discover mysterious artifacts, learn to cast spells, and encounter legendary beasts and iconic characters along the way!"

"Niantic Labs had tremendous success with Pokémon Go, which paired their expertise in building location-based augmented reality mobile experiences with a top-flight IP with a ravenous fan base", TechCrunch wrote.

Revealed today in a blog post on the Pottermore website, Portkey's games "will feature both new characters and - excitingly - could feature familiar characters "at different points in their lives" from the Harry Potter stories".

Published by Niantic and co-developed by Niantic and Warner Bros. Niantic Labs, the makers of the Pokémon-themed augmented reality game, are now working on one inspired by Harry Potter, Entertainment Weekly reports. But it was only after it took on an established brand that it caught the wider public's attention.

HBO now has the streaming rights for the Harry Potter universe film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and has recently streamed Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, but not at the same time.

"I think the Harry Potter game is a huge deal", commented Piers Harding-Rolls from the IHS Markit consultancy. Whatever the mechanics of the game, with the Harry Potter franchise extremely large fanbase, it's safe to say there will be a lot of interest in this game.

It will be on their Niantic platform, which, if you've followed 'Pokemon Go' at all, is derived from a game called 'Ingress.' The platform is basically the same, only instead of the portals, those are your PokeStops.
