Pokemon Go Blocked From Released In China for Security Concerns

One of the biggest mobile markets out there is China, and while Niantic, Pokemon Co. and Nintendo would love to have Pokémon Go release there, it doesn’t seem to ever be happening. This is due to the Chinese state censor blocking the game from release in there due to security risks. Specifically, these include “a threat to geographical information security and the threat to transport and the personal safety of consumers.”

While this may seem excessive, it is worth noting that there have been multiple reports of injuries and accidents caused by people playing Pokémon Go while distracted. As well, gaming addiction is actually a major concern in China, with extreme cases having made headlines in the country. Given these facts, it does make sense that the government would have several concerns.
