Although plenty of gamers in Europe and elsewhere have been enjoying Pokémon GO whether it's actually released in their country or not, Niantic hasn't forgotten that it still needs to roll-out the viral hit in a lot of major territories. There have been delays as the developers have battled against extreme demand on the game's servers.
The app is starting to make its way in Europe at last, though, with the app's official Twitter account confirming that it's now available in Germany:
We've checked here in the UK and it's still absent from the Google Play store in the country, so evidently we are seeing a phased roll-out for the EU, perhaps one country at a time as servers are closely managed.
In any case hopefully this is just the start, as the sooner Niantic can get the app out officially on a global basis the better for them, The Pokémon Company and Nintendo.
