Niantic is certainly going to be busy monitoring its server uptime with the massive influx of new players that came online over the weekend. However, it hasn’t yet launched the game in three major mobile and gaming markets: India, China and Korea.

Releasing the game in those markets will likely help its flagging growth. But Niantic CEO John Hanke noted that it isn’t really as easy as flipping a switch. He told Forbes that regulations in China and limited Google Maps data for South Korea (owing to security concerns in North Korea) are holding his company back from launching the game in those countries.



The game just became more global. It hasn’t even been opened in 3 of the biggest mobile market yet.
