The makers of Pokemon Go, Nicantic, have reportedly started to work on a game set in the Harry Potter universe.

With the MAD success of Pokemon Go, app developers are keen to invent something that will make sure we all quit our jobs and superglue our phones to our hands.

Nicantic wasted no time aquiring the rights to the idea, which millions of people have pitched to the gaming giants.

Niantic's senior developer, Marcus Figueroa, even talked about the idea in a recent interview and confirmed that they WILL be working on a Harry Potter Go app in the future:

“We have acquired the rights for the app. The demand for this title was absolutely insane, so we figured we’d give it a shot. If we’re lucky we might see a launch by early 2017, but it’s hard to tell this early in the project.

“We want to do something with schools of witchcraft and wizardry, similar to pokestops in Pokemon GO. As wells a quest system, and possibly large scale completely interactive events, but no promises. That’s all I can say.”

It could take years, of course, but good things come to those who WAIT.
