Not only had Pokémon Go taken the world by storm after having launched in the U.S. and UK first, it has also added a whooping $11 billion market value to Japanese company Nintendo, owner of the franchise. Today the video game launched in 26 more countries and after having had server issues in the past, it comes with little surprise that the addition of millions more players would not go down well. The game is now available in most of Europe, including Iceland, Slovenia, Greece, Germany, Austria and Belgium.
This afternoon the official Pokémon Go Twitter account had to admit that they have server issues and it looks like they have not been resolved yet. For a moment, rumors were even circulating the Internet that the app had been hacked, but that does not seem to be true.
Let’s hope that the server are fixed fast before the world breaks down and does not know what to do with itself anymore.
