Niantic thinks Pokemon Go can proceed for one more decade



‘Not just for the subsequent 5 years, however possibly 10-15’
It’s taken Pokemon Go over 5 years to get to the X and Y collection (with dabbling within the Galar area), and it’s practically updated. What occurs after that? Effectively possibly one other Pokemon Go decade is to come back, in line with Niantic.
Talking to Eurogamer, EMEA (Europe, the Center East, and Africa) product advertising and marketing supervisor Philip Marz had a fairly pointed reply about the way forward for the sport:
“From a content material standpoint, even when there’s a limitation when it comes to the Pokémon which are nonetheless accessible, there’s a few completely different different initiatives we’re serious about to maintain the momentum going, really, and actually pay into that mission and ambition to make Pokémon Go a without end sport not just for the subsequent 5 years, however possibly 10-15. Who is aware of, really, however I believe the file of the previous 5 years has put us in an important place to proceed that momentum.”
Now, a advertising and marketing supervisor hyping one thing as a “without end sport” just isn’t an out-there sentiment. However on the similar time, Niantic has made a ton of dough worldwide from Pokemon Go, so eager to proceed to experience that gravy prepare is smart for them, in addition to The Pokemon Firm. And you must assume that very early on there was some kind of plan for once they run out.
Whether or not that includes extra occasions, unique characters (which the sport has already dove into fairly a bit), or simply incorporating the entire upcoming video games like Pokemon Legends, is but to be seen. However we do know that Pokemon as a complete is rarely going to cease, so although there may be some lulls between video games, finally Sport Freak and The Pokemon Firm will give Niantic extra ammo.
