Pokémon GO being rolled out worldwide
General News — 16 July, 2016
Pokémon GO, the augmented-reality smartphone game, is slowly being rolled out worldwide. It was released last week in Australia and New Zealand, followed by the USA just before the weekend. Due to the game's massive success and the resulting login/connection troubles, other countries were delayed while the problems were resolved.
The last few days saw a release in Germany and the UK, followed by most of Europe today. Specifically, players in Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Greenland, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland can now download Pokémon GO!
It's believed that a release in France has been delayed due to the recent horrific attacks in Nice, but it should be available within a week. No word yet on Japan and the rest of Asia and other continents.
