The Pokémon Go has been released in New Zealand, Australia and United States on July 6, 2016. This new augmented reality game went viral after the release in these three countries.
Actually, the high demand has surprised Niantic, the developer of the game, which realized that the server infrastructure is quite weak for the big amount of people who are accessing it. This is the reason why the Pokémon Go service went down during the first couple of days after launch. In order to make sure that the servers don’t crash, the Pokémon Go players have tried to play the game during late night. As expected, during late night, there are fewer players online which means that the server is not stressed as it is during the day.
There were some players who have suggested that the Pokémon Go is not released in the UK because of the BREXIT, but this is not the case. Niantic has decided to make sure that the servers will be able to handle the amount of UK players who will want to play the game once it will be released in their country. This might take longer than expected, as they will need better hardware so that the servers won’t crash during heavy load.
Unfortunately, we are not sure yet when exactly Pokémon Go will be released in the UK and the rest of Europe, but Niantic said on its Twitter account that in order to make sure that all the players can have a great experience while playing Pokémon Go, it (the developer) needs to continue adding new resources.
Hopefully, the developer company will bring some more power to the servers so that they can release the game in other countries as well.
