Pokemon GO New Features Co-operative gameplay rewards and more
There is no denying that Pokemon GO is no longer as popular as it once was; However, that does not mean that Niantic is going to abandon its very profitable project. As proof of this we have recent statements from John Hanke, general manager of the study, who spoke a little bit about what is on the way to Pokémon GO .
In an interview with Waypoint, Hanke stated that Pokémon GO exceeded its expectations regarding the potential of games that go beyond a screen. Thus, the intent of the study is to build novelties about things that reward playing cooperatively, and to create “available experiences that offer more depth than the mechanics of capturing.”
According to Hanke, these options will soon come “briefly” while Niantic continues to work on more complete versions. He also said that the company plans to create events on a global scale that many users have already organized.
Later, the CEO of Niantic reiterated that options such as exchange and battles between coaches are still on the way. That’s not all, as he also explained that if the development team had not had to fix problems of servers and bugs of Pokémon GO in its first months, it is probable that some of those expected characteristics would already be available.
Getting the opportunity to make a Pokémon game in the West was a big deal to Niantic, that much was true from the start. “It’s sort of like when the big studio picks the indie director, you know, to do the next Avengers movie or something,” Hanke says. “And, of course, you feel lucky.”
