Rumors about Niantic developing a Harry Potter game actually surfaced previous year, though the developer quickly squashed those rumors. Interactive through its new subsidiary, the appropriately named Portkey Games.
Do you expect Harry Potter: Wizard's Unite to capture the nation's attention in the same way that Pokemon GO did? It's easy to see how Harry Potter's world of fantasy and spell casting could easily merge with location-based gaming and mobile augmented reality experiences.
Although TechCrunch is claiming the news to be real, neither Niantic Labs or Warner Bros.
Last year, there were a lot of rumors about the game being under development but we didn't hear anything official up till now. This gives Niantic a lot more room to get creative with the challenges and environment that it offers users - but it also gives them a lot more potential to mess it up. Interactive are tackling the world of "Harry Potter" in the same fashion.
