No secondary announcement was made about any plans to replace the Gold subscription once it was exhausted. However, the Harry Potter Fan Club hinted that there might be something in the works, saying: “We don’t have anything new to share at the moment, but we’re constantly working on creating new magical products and experiences to provide fans with exciting new benefits, so stay tuned.” One can only hope that there will be something as exciting, if not more, coming down the pipeline to soften the blow of the exclusive membership level making an exit.
