While Pokemon Go is immensely popular throughout the world, and holds several Guinness World records, not everyone will be able to enjoy it. China has joined Iran in banning Pokemon Go from their country.
China stated that the game was “too dangerous” for the country’s citizens – which makes it incredibly unlikely the game will ever be released, unfortunately. Chinese state censor, the State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television, has major concerns about the augmented reality game.
A games panel working as part of the China Audio-video and Digital Publishing Association has identified a “threat to geographical information security and the threat to transport and the personal safety of consumers.” noting “a high level of responsibility to national security and the safety of people’s lives and property,” the Chinese state censor is said to be working with other government agencies to assess the security risks.
Even should it be determined that the game isn’t a security risk, it has been noted that the game relies on Google services, such as Google Maps to work properly – and these services are banned in China.
While this may be a blow to Niantic who may have wished to release in China for financial reasons, the app is still drawing in $2,000,000 of revenue a day.
