The Pokemon Go international release has reportedly been paused due to server trouble, leading gamers to wonder when it will be launched.
Developer Niantic labs started the worldwide roll out of the highly anticipated game earlier this week. However, server issues have forced the company to ?pause? the Pokemon Go release in several countries.
Niantic CEO John Hanke has assured gamers that they are aware of the server problems and are working double time to repair them.
The official Pokemon Go Twitter page also posted a statement. “Thank you for your patience. We have been working to fix the server issues. We will continue rolling out Pokemon GO to new countries soon,? their tweet read.

The recent Pokemon Go international release was plagued by issues after the game was unofficially made available through an APK leak. This caused players to experience access and connection problems just hours after the official Pokemon Go launch.
Some speculated that the game?s premature release via the APK leak caused the server problems. However, there have also been reports that gamers in official areas were also unable to access the game.
Aside from the server problems that have been hindering the worldwide rollout of the game, players have also aired out other problems with Pokemon Go. The included issues such as high battery consumption, location inaccuracy, poor audio and many more.
Some gamers have also been unable to download Pokemon Go since the game is also reportedly not compatible with certain Android and iOS devices.
Pokemon Go cheats have also been circulating the net. There were rumors about cheating tactics that supposedly allow gamers to access Pokecoins, Pokeballs, and other game resources for free.
An official statement was posted Niantic via their website to warn players of these exploits. The company said that they will issue a warning or suspend players who violate their Pokemon GO trainer guidelines, which could be through the use of unofficial software, falsification of your location, and using multiple accounts.
Gamers from all around the world are hoping that all these issues can be addressed so that the Pokemon Go international release can roll out completely.
