(NEW YORK) -- Harry Potter fans waiting for the official launch of the highly-anticipated website Pottermore just need to be a little more patient.
After a six-month delay, the site is now slated to debut in early April.
Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling announced the creation of the website last summer, saying it would provide "an online reading experience unlike any other." At the time, the website was scheduled to launch the following October.
But that didn't happen after one million fans were invited to test the site and provide feedback.
A new blog post on Pottermore says, "It became clear that our original platform wouldn’t be suitable when millions more users came on to the site. So we made a big decision: to move Pottermore to an entirely different platform setup."
