For those of you Potter fans who have been excited ever since the new Harry Potter game was announced by Niantic Labs’ (the creators of Pokémon Go), it’s finally here. Unfortunately, it’s currently out only in the United States (US), although the company is said to launch it today (21st of June) globally (I hope it includes Sri Lanka 🇱🇰).
This new game is called ‘Harry Potter: Wizards Unite’ and its a game that is similar to Pokémon Go, where it requires the user to traverse in a virtual map that is overlaid on the real-world and users have to collect magical artifacts.
Originally, Niantic and the company’s partner, Portkey Games who is a new subsidiary of Warner Bros. games that is dedicated to the J.K.Rowling franchise said that the title would be available on Friday the 21st of June (today) in the United States (US) and United Kingdom (UK) as a part of their global rollout. It’s still very unclear if this game is available for the users in the UK, but those of you living in the US shouldn’t be having a problem in installing this game on your Android or iOS device via your respective store links (which are given above).
The worldwide launch of Harry Potter: Wizards Unite begins this Friday, June 21! Keep your eyes peeled and wand ready for more information as the game goes live in your region soon. #WizardsUnite pic.twitter.com/ckk4s4mi8a

A few weeks back, Harry Potter: Wizards Unite was launched in beta in New Zealand and Australia making the users from those markets the first to experience the game and get access to it. Now, it appears that users in the US can download this game one day ahead of the expected launch.
This early launch is not something that was totally unexpected, because mobile games tend to be published on a rolling basis and may be available in certain regions at various times of the day over the course of what turns out to be a multi-launch day event. Once again, the 21st of June is said to be the global launch date. I hope all you Potter fans do get to experience it today.
