Fans were quite excited when Pokemon GO developer Niantic was announced as the developer for Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, an augmented-reality game similar to GO. Interactive recently revealed a new label expressly created to make new games for the fantasy series, with the publisher now proclaiming that it has plans to release a fresh RPG based on the property named Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery that's set to release in 2018 for Android and iOS. And let's not forget that this new development means that we will now, officially, have TWO Harry Potter games coming our way next year.

The game itself will be developed by the Los Angeles local Jam City studio hand in hand with Warner Bros.

"Nothing like this has ever been done before", says Jam City CEO Chris DeWolfe of the first mobile game created based on the Hogwarts school.

J.K. Rowling's multibillion-dollar wizarding franchise will get a new mobile game, "Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery", set to be released next spring. Not to be outdone by the announcement, Warner Bros.


Jam City assures Harry Potter fans that the game has been created by people that love the books and movies, and so it will remain true to the wizarding world created by J.K. Rowling. You can enroll in classes, such as Transfiguration, Defense Against the Dark Arts, and Potions, with iconic Hogwarts professors teaching you the magical skills you need.

"We are very familiar with the action gaming approach that EA took in the past [for the Harry Potter console games]", Yguado said.

Harry Potter: Wizards Unite will give its users the chance to face off against some of the dreaded villains in the Harry Potter universe.

"Hogwarts Mystery is a mobile gaming experience inspired by J.K. Rowling's spell-binding lore, and it will be an exciting way for fans to experience the Wizarding World", said Davis Haddad, president of Warner Bros. There is no specific release date other than 2018.
