When Pokémon Go gave his debut on mobile devices in the summer of 2016, nobody could probably foresee the swift success of this game. In 2021 Pokémon Go now celebrates his fifth birthday and slowly returns Corona pandemic to normal. But what exactly does that mean? What brings the future of Pokémon Go ? Director of Global Product Marketing Michael Sterenka and EMEA Product Marketing Manager Philip Marz has spoken with the editors of Eurogamer.
Back to in-person live events
First of all, Marz and Strenka dealt with the question of how hybrid events such as the GO will still play a role in the future. Sterenka said, among other things:
Sobald it is safe again, we want to go back to these extreme premium-in-person live events. But we believe that players always want to have the global version. So what you will probably see in the future If there is more a hybrid than in the past. […] We want to go back in the long term, which has made these events at all. […] We look what the right balance between these in-person Events in a large park and global experience is at which everyone can participate.
The coming months, according to Sterenka, should not only bring other go-festivals and safari zones, but also new features, which are initially available in the context of test phases for individual regions. The ability to improve Pokéstops is expected to be available worldwide as soon as possible – a release date is not yet available. In addition, the developers pointed out that Pokémon GO still did not be Feature Complete – fans are still looking forward to new features, which always like that.
After all, even if Sterenka and Marz could not speak about many details, they announced that they wanted to document the further development of Pokémon Go as a roadmap via the developer diary. Fans should therefore keep their eyes in the official blog for new information.
