The video is not yet uploaded to the official youtube channel, here's a link for one from Game Clips and Tips

But the info seems real, and was in fact reported in Pottermore.

It does kind of put to rest all our theories about house sorting or team playing, but it looks fun! What to you think so far?

Direct from Pottermore :)
Today, Niantic and WB Games revealed amazing new information about the hotly anticipated augmented reality mobile game Wizards Unite, set to bring the Wizarding World to life in a whole new way. Heres what we know so far.
This is the next big offering from Portkey Games

Wizards Unite serves as the second big release from Portkey Games, the games label from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment that invites you to be the centre of new Wizarding World adventures, all inspired by J.K. Rowlings original stories.


The general story? You must help rescue wizarding world characters, creatures and more...
So, surprise! You now work for the Statute of Secrecy Task Force! This organization was formed by the Ministry of Magic and the International Confederation of Wizards to investigate and contain the Calamity.
Due to unknown forces (known as the Calamity), artefacts, beasts, people and even memories of the wizarding world (called Foundables) seem to be appearing in present-day Muggle reality, and its up to all witches and wizards to unite together to rescue them and return everything to its rightful place. Oh, PS: that includes you.

For example, you may be walking down to the shops, minding your own business, when a magical Trace appears on the ground indicating that a Foundable has appeared! Entering the Trace will bring you into an encounter with the likes of Buckbeak the Hippogriff, who has been whisked away by the Calamity and is trapped by the chaotic, Confoundable magic.
Your job is to help dispel the situation and return the Foundable Buckbeak back to his rightful place. And he is just one of many familiar faces youll see.
Wizards Unite will transform your reality around you
So how on earth will we be able to even see Buckbeak? We dont get many Hippogriffs down our way. Well, we already knew that Wizards Unite would be an augmented reality game for our phones, but now we know a bit more about what that entails.

Map_with_Landmark_Highlighted.jpg

Youll need to become your best wizardy or witchy self, and create your new avatar (complete with augmented reality wizarding accessories, such as scarves, hats and Luna Lovegoods Spectrespecs) using selfie-mode, set your house affiliation and wand (core, wood type, length and flexibility) to create your Ministry ID. Once youre all set and official, your surroundings will begin to emulate the rustic joys of the wizarding world.
As this game features real-world 360-degree exploration, your phone will use augmented reality technology to create a magical map that imitates your actual surroundings. Regular Muggle buildings will turn into Fortresses, Inns, Greenhouses and more... and youll be able to gather valuable supplies such as delicious foods, or potion ingredients that youll need for upcoming Wizarding Challenges. More on those later. And yes, throughout all of this, of course you will have a wand to help you overpower the Confoundables.

So, watch out for magical traces
Fervent fans of the upcoming game will notice that the Wizards Unite social media channels have been launching Trace videos, such as an unruly Niffler here or a rogue Nimbus 2000 broomstick there.

These Traces are triggers that help you to discover the Foundables. Once youve discovered whatever you find (one example sees a fallen Harry Potter in the middle of a Quidditch game, about to receive the Dementors Kiss) youll need to trace a glyph on your phone screen to dispel the Confoundable spell. Once youve succeeded, Harry should be restored to his rightful place in the wizarding world.
Youll also need to pick a wizarding world profession
You may be a Statute of Secrecy Task Force recruit, but you still have a day job.

Wizards Unite

Youll have a choice of picking from three of our favourites: Auror, Magizoologist or Professor. Whatever you pick will help shape and level your skills, abilities as a witch or wizard. This will be particularly useful, because...
It helps to work together
The game works best when played with friends (or, hey, fellow players in the street that you could abruptly make your new best friends!) due to multiplayer challenges that youll come across on your travels.

Visit areas called Fortresses, and youll be tasked with taking part in some augmented reality combat encounters. For example, maybe youll run into a particularly nasty bout of Cornish Pixies that youll need to vanquish as part of a team. We all remember what happened when Professor Lockhart messed with those guys.
Bear in mind that working together with comrades from different wizarding professions will help you cover more ground as well as unlock rarer content.
And thats only one of many, many things to do...
While your over-arching mission is to restore the Muggle world to its rightful state, youll also be able to take part in smaller extra-curricular activities along the way. Dotted around your surroundings, youll find all sorts of wonderful magical items to pick up which work very well for one of the mini-games, which invites you to make potions.
The game champions outdoor exercise and will magically change wherever you are
Varying external circumstances will shape your gameplay and change what objects youll find. Weather, geo-location, natural phenomena, time of day, even phases of the moon can all affect the type and amounts of potion ingredients that appear around you, so get planning some decidedly-more-magical-than-usual nature walks.
Collect the right items, and youll be able to brew your own concoctions which could be good for, say, if you get swiped by a Cornish Pixie and need a bit of health replenishing...
And if thats not all real enough for you...
Discovering Portkeys will bring everything to a whole new level. Represented in perhaps their most iconic form (a boot!) finding and unlocking a Portkey Portmanteau will activate a a Portkey meaning your phone will invite you to enter a new world through your phone, almost like virtual reality. Here, you may stumble into a selection of familiar Wizarding World locations.

And the game could truly go on forever
So, as you may have gathered, were set for a rather addictive experience. Lets admit it, the Muggle world is a bit boring. But within Wizards Unite, a whole new world awaits us at just a tap on our phone screens.
And excitingly, the mysteries of the Calamity are only just beginning. Why are our wizarding world favourites out of their rightful place? Why are they here? And what other magical mishaps are set to occur? Expect some familiar characters as well as new wizards and witches to be introduced to try and figure out what on earth is going on: enigmatic new characters that may be the key to this huge mystery. The game-makers have promised this game involves a deep, multi-year narrative arc to discover the truth, and honestly, were totally here for it.
We may even invest in some new walking boots.
