Pokémon Go cools down

Posted on October 17, 2016 at 12:45 pm

There’s no denying it; Pokémon was one of the most surprising success stories of the year and it kick started a new form of gaming, or so it seemed to. The fact of the matter is the game has peaked and interest has died off recently. Several months ago you couldn’t walk down the street without people playing Pokémon but times have changed quickly and people have moved on. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still hugely popular and there are millions of people playing it across the globe but media attention has slowed down, the crazy clowns for Halloween seem to have taken over and you only have to look at Google trends to see that Pokémon has enjoyed its peak. Augmented reality gaming will without a doubt continue and we could see a Harry Potter game soon if rumours are true, but we’re pleased to say that there are unlikely to be any further Pokémon Go updates from us until something big happens, like a new release.
