In a new interview with Vice, via AppleInsider, Niantic CEO John Hanke has been talking about the game’s massive success and what players can expect from future Pokémon Go updates.
“It has far surpassed our expectations in just turning everybody onto the potential for games that break out of the screen,” said Hanke. “But the priority for ‘Pokémon Go’ now is to build in those things that reward co-operative gameplay, and make experiences available that offer more depth than just the capturing mechanic.”
Referring to the eventual arrival to the game of Generation Two Pokémon, PvP battles, and an “abbreviated form” of trading, Hanke said “It’s going to be done soon. It is what it is. I’ll take the massive wave of hysteria we enjoyed, and just deal with the fact that it’s caused us to take a bit longer to get the rest of the features up. We’re really happy to make our users happy.”
