"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".

In 2016, Niantic developed the augmented reality game Pokemon Go, which turned into a worldwide phenomenon.

The new website also reveals that Wizards Unite will be released in 2019. Niantic's next game will take fans from the nostalgia of catching Pokemon to the nostalgia of visiting the wizarding world of Harry Potter.

In addition to the 2019 release window, a new Harry Potter: Wizards Unite logo and teaser trailer have been released. Author of the source material J.K Rowling has also not been directly involved in the development of the game, although she did fashion the lore out of which the game comes - so her indirect influence will no doubt be apparent.

Quite a lacklustre trailer, but to hear that the game will be coming next year is a relief.

Video game stories from other sites on the web.

"Please resist the urge to panic". "We worry it is only a matter of time before even the most incurious Muggles catch wind of it". We call on all witches and wizards to help contain the Calamity or risk the worst of times since You Know Who. "Brush up on your spells, get your wand ready, and enlist immediately".

The game places players in the role of witches and wizards working for the the Statute of Secrecy Task Force, aiming to erase traces of magic from the muggle world to stop the "Calamity".
