The Verge speculated the emojis would be made available for the anticipated iOS11 and MacOS High Sierra updates in the fall.

The new emoji are technically a set of emoji that are launching as part of Unicode 10.0, the standard set for emoticons. There's even emoji for Vampire, Merperson, Elf, Genie, and Zombie.
