Pokemon Go Niantic’s Founder Needs to Quit Trying to be an AR God Because It’s Not Working

Trainers, we are saddened to hear about 230 people losing their job after Niantic shuts down NBA All World and Marvel: World of Heroes.

The founder and CEO of Niantic announced they are shutting down two mobile projects because they want to focus on Pokemon Go. He said, “The top priority is to keep Pokemon Go healthy and growing as a forever game.” He also confirmed they made changes to the Pokemon Go team.

He said they will continue investing in AR, but the Pokemon Go community doesn’t agree with these investments. The players want simple stuff, one of them Remote Raids changes.

FleeceKing’s Tweet got our attention, and we must say we agree with everything he said. “Mr. Hanke needs to quit trying to be an AR God and being stubborn about the ‘get out and go’ exclusively approach, it’s costing them millions, losing their player base and now laying people off? It’s so sad.”

We agree with the tweet and think Niantic needs to pay more attention to the Pokemon Go community. They must hear us before everything goes downhill.

Don’t get me wrong, setting Pokemon Go as their top priority is great, but none of this would’ve happened if they had made the right decision. But they didn’t want to hear us and unfortunately, here are the results.

Do you agree that Niantic’s founder and CEO should quit trying to be an AR God?
