Many users expected Pottermore to be open to the general public at the end of October, however, it appears those who did not get early access will have some more waiting to do. The Pottermore Insider Blog has announced that Beta will be extended through the month of November. A new opening date has not been set and should be announced closer to the end of extended Beta.
Pottermore is now offline for a few days to make some improvements to the website. This delay in open access will give Beta users a chance to test the new technical improvements being made. These improvements will not be changes to the game-play or experiences found in the first book & potion making, rather these “background” changes will hopefully make the experience less frustrating for players to participate in. Right now some early access members are still having issues with lag and disconnections from the site.
Stay tuned for the latest information on Pottermore’s opening!
