Thousands of gamers are currently hunting Pokémon in the real world thanks to Pokémon GO. The augmented reality mobile game is out in select regions around the world, including the United States and Australia, but many countries still don’t have access to the popular title. Meanwhile, countries that can play it already are experiencing a lot of server problems, often making the game unplayable for extended periods of time.
Speaking with Business Insider, Niantic Labs CEO John Hanke confirmed that the development team is well aware of the server issues and they’re hard at work on a solution. In the meantime,
Pokémon GO won’t be releasing in any more countries until the servers are under control. According to Hanke, the global rollout of the game is now “paused until we’re comfortable.” Hopefully Niantic has the game running smoothly in the very near future.
