in an interview with el Periodico, Hanke shed more info on the news he unveiled yesterday. Pokémon GO is on a schedule to receive one major content update every three months, group play is coming and new Pokémon are announced
It’s yet unclear what “Ingress 2.0” means and which new Pokémon Hanke referred to, but it’s very exciting news!
How has the public reacted to the update? People seem very happy about the new Pokemon, about the new possibilities of characterizing the character. It has been noticed in the number of users and income. We have recovered users who had stopped playing.
Will there be more releases? We have scheduled the release of updates every quarter this year. People asked for updates, but you have to think that the six months before the launch we could only focus on the first version was very good. We could not think of the new functions, only in small details. Once launched, we were able to start designing the updates, and that’s what we’ll do now every quarter.
How will they be? There will be new functions. For example, being able to play cooperatively, group competitions. It is something that has worked in Ingress and is what we will adapt to Pokémon Go. There will also be new Pokémon.
And new games? I can announce that there will be Ingress 2.0, which will be released later this year. It will be a totally new version, something very important for the current players of Ingress but also for the new ones. We also have other projects, but unfortunately I can not talk about them.
