The Pokémon Go rollout has begun once again and has made its way to Europe starting with Germany.

Niantic initially paused the global roll out of Pokémon Go this weekend so they could work on server stability, then rumours surfaced suggesting that the developer would hit play once again some time this week, and it looks as if those rumours are true.

Earlier today, Pokémon Go launched in Germany on iOS and Android, hopefully marking the beginning of the European roll out. Right now, there’s no current word on whether the game will be coming to the UK later this week, but we remain hopeful.

It’s looking likely that the roll out will be taken slow as the game seems to have taken the world by storm. Officially the game is only available in North America, Australia, and New Zealand, but many workarounds have meant that players from other countries can get their hands on the game.

Pokémon Go has become a global phenomenon earning Niantic millions of dollars in just a short week. The game also caused Nintendo’s shares to rise by a whopping 25%. According to one firm, the game could be earning the developers billions of dollars a year, once the game’s roll-out is complete.
