Yesterday (or today, depending on where you live) some lucky (and incredibly talented) WUtuber insiders got a very special email from Warner Bros and Niantic. The companies invited them to a Wizards Unite LA Event!
This specific email came from @XpectoGO, who are always happy to share news with us all.
Check out their feature: Wonderful Wutubers: XpectoGO
The exclusive invitation
The email reads:
WB Games and Niantic are pleased to invite you to an exclusive event to experience the highly anticipated augmented reality mobile game, Harry Potter: Wizards Unite.
The event will take place on June 18, 2019 at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Universal Studios Hollywood.
Please Save the date – more details to come!

What this could mean for the Worldwide Launch
If you read our post comparing the PoGO and WizU release timelines, you might notice an interesting detail about this date. June 18th is about two weeks after the Wizards Unite Beta Players Survey. This falls in line with Pokémon GO, which was released two weeks after the early access players survey.
This email got us all aflutter, and got our crazy brains coming up with about a million possibilities, but we’ve narrowed it down to three.
- The WUtubers have been invited to the actual launch event. They will be there to share with us the Wizards Unite Hype.
- The event takes place on a Tuesday. The Game will drop on the 19th, which is a Wizarding Wednesday.
- We are very close to launch, and the WUtubers will have a chance to try out the game and tell us all about it as Warner gives WIzU marketing a last push before launching soon(ish).
While option one and two are the most exciting ones, we think option three makes much more sense. This doesn’t mean we’ll have to wait a long time, just be a bit more patient and enjoy some serious game coverage while we get ready to play globally.
What do you guys think? Do you agree with our take on the email?
