Niantic Labs, the developers behind Pokémon Go, have announced that their follow-up game will be titled Harry Potter: Wizards Unite and based on J.K. Rowling's famous book series. This is not the first time that we have heard about a Harry Potter AR game from Niantic as pointed by the report.

Since they have seemingly perfected the genre of capturing creatures, why not adapt Harry Potter into a similar experience next?
