Pokemon Go Geo-Block status update: Server issues delay the release of Pokemon Go in New Regions

The heat augmented-reality mobile game, Pokemon Go geo-block status update: server issues delay the launch in new regions. Niantic is struggling to maintain the servers in the official regions and will not be launching "Pokemon Go" in new areas any time soon, The Bitbag reported.

The gaming company has even posted on its official website job ad that requires sever infrastructure. "Create the server infrastructure to support our hosted AR/Geo platform underpinning projects such as Pokémon GO using Java and Google Cloud. You will work on real-time indexing, querying and aggregation problems at massive scales of hundreds of millions of events per day, all on a single, coherent world-wide instance shared by millions of users," reads the job description.

Due to increase in server requests from illegal regions, Niantic Labs and Nintendo partially geo-blocks select cities and to provide real-time geo-block status in Asia and South America, many AR-game fans have formed a Reddit thread –"Pokemon Go release status: Asia and South America". Check out the details below.
