Pottermore To Open In April

Pottermore.com, the online destination site for all things Harry Potter including eBooks and new story lines, will open to the public in April 2012.

The site has been operating in beta since last summer and was originally slated to launch to the public in October. Pottermore.com explains the delays: “We wanted to make sure that we had a really good understanding of how people want to use the site and which bits we’d need to modify before giving more people access. We gathered some incredibly useful feedback from our Beta users, and it became clear that our original platform wouldn’t be suitable when millions more users came on to the site.”

The April full launch will be on a new platform and according to the site, over the coming weeks and months there will be new exclusive content and features such as sound.
