Good news Foursquare fans or those in Europe who want to get in on the action. Co-founder Dennis Crowley has confirmed that they have “a big round of European cities coming out today (!! – Nov 4) and then some ‘Worldwide’ cities after that.” He made the comment in a support forum (hat tip to The Next Web).
The cities are understood to be Athens, Barcelona, Berlin, Brussels, Copenhagen, Dublin, Helsinki, San Antonio, Madrid, Manchester, Paris, Prague, Rome and Stockholm. Until now, London and Amsterdam were the only European cities available.
Crowley also says that the mobile location-based game is working on a “foursquare everywhere” model which will allow someone to check in anywhere regardless of whether it’s a “featured city”, similar to Gowalla. The new feature is said to be out “in the next few weeks”, so hopefully those who live elsewhere in Europe won’t have to wait much longer.
Update (Robin Wauters): and they’re live!
