Niantic remains “100% committed” to Pokemon GO, news about feature improvements next week

Posted on November 11, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in Mobile, News

This week, it was revealed that Pokemon GO developer Niantic is creating a new mobile game Harry Potter: Wizards Unite. That means the studio is involved with three different on-going titles between that project, Pokemon GO, and Ingress.

Despite taking on Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, Niantic doesn’t intend to abandon Pokemon GO. The company said in a statement that the team is still “100% committed” to the game. Additionally, the Pokemon GO team is looking to expand, and we’ll be hearing about “upcoming improvements to certain features” next week.

Niantic’s full statement is as follows:

“Just like many of you, we’re super excited about Harry Potter: Wizards Unite and are working hard with our partners at Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, and WB Games San Francisco’s development team to bring that to life. However, we–the Pokémon GO development team–want to say that we are 100% committed to creating an ever-changing and growing game that gets our players exploring, meeting each other, and deepening their connection to the Pokémon universe. We’re actively expanding the Pokémon GO development team to build many more amazing features in 2018. Stay tuned for an update next week on upcoming improvements to certain features.”

    You’re just like Keiji Inafune, gather Money with Mighty No.9, do a monster downgrade of the “Footage not final” vídeo/artwork, spend the Money on everything except the game(animation, Red Ash, ReCore and other things) and deliver a bad product to the customer.

    You know those times where someone is attacked and made fun of so often that you start to feel sorry for them, even though they might totally deserve it?

    That’s how I feel about Niantic right now.

    Well, I mean, you just can’t be 100% committed to something if you’re dividing your company’s resources between different games. It just makes sense.

    … and it’s a dirty little secret in smartphone games that when one game begins to wane, you take your A team off of it and get them developing a new game, while your B team works on maintaining the game and trying to encourage more activity and microtransactions.

    What I take this to mean is that they’re still going to be putting in resources and working on updates and improvements. However, most likely the updates and improvements won’t be very large at all, and Pokémon Go will just stagnate even more.
