Pokémon Go Six Months Behind Niantic's Schedule

CEO John Hanke of Niantic was interviewed by Andrew Webster of The Verge to celebrate the 1 year anniversary of Pokémon Go. One of the topics discussed in the interview was the development timeline of the game and John Hanke confirmed they are behind their own internal schedule for the game. He also discussed that trading and player-versus-player combat are still being worked on. John also explained that development has been hampered because of a lack of money and is quoted: "But we only had so much money, and we were doing what we thought was reasonable."

Interview Question - When you look at where the game is now, and compare it to your initial road map, how similar are the two?

We lost probably six months on our schedule because of the success of the game. Really all the way through November and December, from launch onward we were rebuilding and rewiring infrastructure just to keep the game running at the scale that we were running at. We were fortunate to have a massive launch, a massive success, and many, many more users than we had planned for. But we had to redirect a substantial portion of the engineering team to [work on] infrastructure versus new features. That switched off things like extending gyms, it pushed out things we still want to have, like player-versus-player and trading. I’d say we’re about six months behind where we thought we would be.

Niantic announced via Twitter that Pokémon Go is indeed still coming out soon after reports began circulating on Saturday that the app had been shelved. The Tweet by Niantic though seems more like damage control rather than an actual announcement of the apps release date. The Pokémon Go app was announced to be released before the end of 2016.

9to5Mac reported that they had a confirmed source with knowledge of Niantic's plans that the Pokémon Go Plus app for Apple Watch had been canceled for now. On September 7th, 2016, Apple had a Special Event at San Francisco’s Bill Graham Civic Auditorium where they announced some their new products for the upcoming year. At the event, Niantic CEO John Hanke had a segment during the presentation where he discussed the current status of Pokémon GO and he announced that Pokémon GO Plus for Apple Watch would be released by the end of 2016.
