Wizards Unite has briefly appeared on the Australian iOS App store, only to get pulled down in a matter of hours. Earlier today, the app was available for download in Australia, although the beta hasn’t yet officially started, resulting in a wave of errors for anyone trying to access the map.

The news follows another incident in the land Down Under, when an email was sent out from Niantic claiming that the Wizards Unite Beta is live in Australia, while in fact it wasn’t. We hope that our Australian readers will soon get their hands on the beta – third time’s a charm!


Excerpt from a support email shared with us


Hello, I downloaded the app from the Australian iOS store but it is crashing during the tutorial with the message “An error has occurred with the wizarding wireless network. Please try again later.” Is the game not launched yet in Australia? Thanks!!



Thank you for contacting Harry Potter: Wizards Unite support.

I see that you are facing issues in playing Harry Potter: Wizards Unite support.

Sorry for any inconvenience this has caused you. Harry Potter: Wizards Unite support was accidentally made available in Australia (Appstore) and we have removed it immediately. However, we are pleased to let you know that Wizards Unite is going to be available soon!

Note again that this will be a beta version of the game. Features, available languages, design, and overall appearance are not final. The product might be buggy and unstable at times. Your participation will help provide feedback so that we can improve the game experience when the game goes live in your region.

You can keep an eye on official blogs and Twitter pages for future updates.
