Australian players received an email this morning incorrectly stating that Wizards Unite beta is available in Australia. We just want to clarify the situation:
- Wizards Unite Beta hasn’t launched in Australia yet
- It is not available in the Google Play store or the App Store
- The email sent out this morning was a mistake on Niantic’s end
As players soon discovered after reading the email, it is not possible to download the beta build yet (latest build we know of is Wizards Unite 0.6.0). A few hours later, an apology email was sent out, clarify the situation and assuring that the game will be available “soon”:
We transcribed both emails for readers with limited mobile data. We sincerely hope that Australia will get a chance to play soon (and that Niantic will stop interns from pressing random buttons on the backend)! If you’re a reader from Australia, hop on to our Discord server and join the #research channel.
