Fans who are eager to get their hands on Pokémon Go may be disappointed to learn that the app will not be made available in regions outside the U.S., New Zealand, Australia, and Germany for the time being.
Since its release nearly a week ago, Pokémon Go has been an overnight sensation that has everyone peeled to their mobile screens. Unfortunately for countries who are dying to play the game, representatives from Niantic Inc., the developers of Pokémon Go, have disappointing news.
Fortyseven, the agency that represents Niantic, sent the following email to IGN:
“The team is currently heads down working on the game. We do not have any announced plans for countries beyond New Zealand, Australia, US and Germany at the moment.
Chris Kramer, Vice President
It seems that rumors have been spreading about the app’s release in new territories outside those previously stated. Hopeful Pokémon trainers will just have to be patient. Of course, those who couldn’t wait in China have already begun downloading the knock-off version of Pokémon Go.
