If you haven't seen anyone wandering around late at night and waggling their smartphone to catch digital animals, just wait: Your friends will probably drag you into the wildly popular Pokémon Go soon. Or perhaps you don't live in America or the antipodes and are eagerly awaiting its international rollout? Sorry to break it to you trainers, but the global expansion of the Pokémon mobile game has been delayed until its servers recover from player overload.

US players might have already seen an error page on the login screen alerting them that servers were momentarily down. While the game is already live in the US, Australia and New Zealand, rollout to new countries is "paused until we're comfortable," John Hanke, CEO of the game's studio Niantic, told Business Insider.
