Niantic renews commitment to Pokémon GO

The recent news that Niantic is working on new augmented reality game, Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, has some fans troubled that the company would no longer be as committed to Pokémon GO. Niantic responded to those fears in a new blog post, saying that they are still 100% behind the game and that Trainers can even expect some improvements coming to Pokémon GO later this week.

"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," explains Niantic.

"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."

I've pointed this out in previous articles - Pokémon GO developers Niantic and The Pokémon Company stated earlier this year that they've only "accomplished 10 percent" of what they want to do with the game. Niantic also recently bought the Evertoon team who will actively work on improving Pokémon GO as a social platform.
