There’s no denying that Pokémon GO has been wildly popular. Even in the face of constant server struggle, players are flocking to the game by tens of thousands. Having been released in Australia, New Zealand, and the United States so far, Pokémon Trainers around the world are on the hunt to complete their collections and take down gyms. It is this massive surge of popularity that has caused Niantic to make the difficult decision to halt the global rollout of Pokémon GO. Addressed in this tweet below, Niantic has stopped the expansion to new countries until they can get the server situation figured out.

Thank you for your patience. We have been working to fix the server issues. We will continue rolling out #PokemonGO to new countries soon.
