It seems as if Pokemon GO will remain shrouded in mystery for the time being. The presentation at GDC, where we were expected to see gameplay footage and a demonstration as to how the game would work was just cancelled.
Niantic Games, the developer behind this title, has made the following statement regarding the cancellation of the presentation:
“We have decided to forego our GDC talk on Pokémon GO in order to focus on getting the product ready for beta test and launch,” says Niantic CEO John Hanke. “As much as we hate to disappoint those in the industry attending GDC, we feel our time and energy right now are best spent on making sure every aspect of the product is where we want it to be.”
There hasn’t been any word on a delay of the project, so we still expect it to launch within the year. We may have to wait until E3 before seeing or hearing anything more about it.
