Niantic CEO John Hanke has explained to Forbes why Japanese gamers still don’t have access to the incredibly popular Pokemon GO. It turns out that at the present moment the server capacity in Japan just couldn’t cope with the demand that the game will undoubtedly see. However, Pokemon GO is expected to be released in Japan by the end of July.
“At present, the server capacity in Japan is not powerful enough. We are working hard with our partners in Japan to enable the servers to keep up with demand once the game goes online there. We expect it to be released by the end of July.”
