Pokemon GO developer says there’s no announced plans for Asia release

Yup, the hottest mobile game currently that we all have been waiting for, Pokemon GO is not coming to Asia anytime soon. This is based on an announcement made by Niantic, the developer of the game.

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


The email from Niantic was made due to the high expectations of Pokemon GO release today due to the App Store and Play Store refresh. This is definitely an upsetting news but at least we can all now continue with our lives and not having to hope that we can become Pokemon Masters anytime soon, as long as you are not in New Zealand, Australia, US and Germany.
