The Harry Potter franchise is known to have given rise to a lot of games, not to mention the beautifully made movies, the original books, and a whole host of merchandise. A new Role Playing Game or RPG, meant specifically for mobile devices, will be launched in 2018. It will allow the players to don the mantle of a wizard, effectively becoming Harry Potter themselves.
Hogwarts is the name of the wizardry and magic school where Harry Potter was the star pupil at. Eager gamers will already be aware of the fact that Warner Brothers has recently given rise to a new label which will only produce Harry Potter-themed games, which is indicative of how much popularity the franchise still enjoys. RPGs have recently witnessed a new spurt in growth, as evidenced by games like Code Vein from Bandai Namco where you can play as a vampire.
A new Pokemon Go-style game aptly titled Harry Potter: Wizards Unite was released last month. With the release of Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, the Potterverse will be further expanded. GameSpot reports that both Warner Bros. and the developer Jam City have revealed that all the players will be able to”create their own character and experience life as a Hogwarts student.” You will also now be able to participate in such magical classes like Defence Against the Dark Arts, a special Potions class, and the Duelling Club.
Now, we already know that come 2018, this new game will come to Android and iOS devices. Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is also hitting mobile screens in 2018. Similar to the concept of Pokemon Go and Injustice 2, you can also roam the real world and collect power-ups, besides defending locations, and further exploring your environment.

There is no news of a Harry Potter game for consoles. While the eight movies that were released had received their own tie-in games developed by Electronic Arts, there have been no new console games announced. A Quidditch-themed game which was called Harry Potter: Quidditch World Cup had also been released.
