Pokémon Go is now live in 15 more countries in Asia : India Release Date Soon?


The wait is over for many Pokémon Go fans in Asia, after the smash hit game went live in 15 new countries in the continent.

The full list of new countries are: Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Taiwan, Papua New Guinea, Fiji, Solomon Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, and Palau.

A major expansion in Asia has been expected for some time.

Last week, Pokemon Go developer Niantic revealed the reason for the game's delayed launch in countries such as India. "We have limited access by third-party services which were interfering with our ability to maintain quality of service for our users and to bring Pokemon Go to users around the world. The large number of users has made the roll-out of Pokemon Go around the world an... interesting... challenge," admits the company, reiterating its desire to bring the game to other nations.

It's just a matter of time before the likes of China and India receive Pokemon Go as developer Niantic has cleared what it deemed were impediments to a release of the game in every country officially. Not like the absence of an official release has stopped eager fans from playing it as we've seen in the past few weeks.
