Pokémon Go Global Release Paused

Pokémon fans residing outside of US, Austalia, and New Zealand may have to wait a little longer for a global rollout.

In an interview with John Hanke, the boss of Niantic, he confirmed that they have decided to hit the pause button on a worldwide release due to overwhelming response to the new augmented reality game, Pokémon Go and their servers are experiencing crashes.

Pokémon Go was initially released in Australia and New Zealand, followed by North America earlier this week. “We thought the game would be popular but it obviously struck a nerve,” says John Hanke. There are no further details on when the game will be released in other countries except that they are working on it and will continue with the release soon.
