Niantic Labs augmented reality hit game Pokemon Go has been dominating the mobile gaming world for several months now. However, there are some parts of the world that are still patiently waiting for the game to be open on their respective countries. Apparently, this would be a great news for the fans of this game as Niantic has currently announced that the game is extending on five new countries worldwide.
The revelation was done by Niantic in a brief statement. Based on the reports from Otakukart, the company declares Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macau, Macedonia and Serbia as the new set of countries to receive the famous augmented reality game. As of this writing, Pokemon Go will now be downloadable through Play Store and iTunes Store. These new countries now join the long list of clubs that have already received the game.
Interestingly though, there are some countries that were given an opportunity to have the game but then eventually losing the chance to play Pokemon Go. The previous incident in Belgium was one example while Iran refused the game by blocking all of their citizens in the country. Although some Pokemon fans all over the world want to see and experience the game in their own respective countries. But it will be out of Niantic's hands if some major cases occur.
Game Rant mentioned that some fans have also burned out on the game and may not initially care about the latest updates. In addition, Niantic CEO John Hanke previously stated that the company's goal is to make the transition of the game's worldwide release smoother before advancing to bringing several new in-game features. With the reported newly opened countries, Niantic is closer in bringing yet another in-game feature.
Understandably, managing an augmented reality game globally is not an easy task. It covers the whole planet's land and water space while keeping the game server stable from millions of daily users. Lastly, the company is still hopeful to expand Pokemon Go's coverage to some countries who have not received it yet.
