After a major tease at an awards show, Niantic has confirmed just what they were teasing. Mathieu de Fayet, Vice President of Strategic Partnerships at Niantic, was recently interviewed in O Globo, a Brazilian newspaper. There, Fayet explained that the huge success of Pokemon GO last year resulted in the team having to “delay some planned innovations”. Some of those innovations, Fayet says, are being worked on and are “due to hit this summer (in the northern hemisphere)”. Among the planned additions are “giving more value to the choice of the teams, releasing Legendary Pokémon and introducing PvP”. Fayet also confirmed that the other major thing that Niantic is working on is to have the game sustain itself by “creating social interactions amongst players”, something that Fayet says the team “learned with Ingress”.
