Pokemon Go India release is on its ways, and now Microsoft has announced that the game will be available in the Windows Store soon. This was disclosed by the Microsoft Portugal’s Facebook page in a comment to a post.
The post was an appeal to Microsoft for bringing the Pokemon Go to the users of Windows Phone. To which the company replied –
The application will be home soon, which refers to the windows phone store.
Team Microsoft Portugal” (translated)
But strangely, now, the comment has been deleted replaced by a new comment mentioning –
“Dear fans, we apologize if the comment published previously you induced in error. We have actually received requests for this application will be available for windows phone. The store windows is evaluating options to satisfy this request in the best possible way. We promise to keep you abreast of any developments.” (translated)
This fresh comment indicates that there is still no assurance of Pokemon Go’s availability for Windows Phone users. We do hope Microsoft finds a way to bring the highly acclaimed game to the Windows Store pretty soon.
The Pokemon Go has been smashing records since its launch. It has become one of the most popular game ever released. According to an analysis by the Macquarie Research, it is the first mobile game in the planet to crack the barrier of 4 billion USD per year, crushing even the famous Candy Crush Saga.
Till now, although the game has released in 35 countries officially, it is being played by Pokemon fans across the world by downloading the apk file of the game from third-party resources. The developer, Nintendo has been struggling to keep the gaming servers working under the enormous load. There have been several instances of server crumbling to outstanding pressure.
Recently, the release of Pokemon Go in Japan has been postponed fearing that the present servers will not be able to take in the upcoming load.
