Explaining his views on the advanced Pokemon Go feature, Niantic CEO John Hanke quoted, “In terms of AR, we launched with a pre-ARKit version of AR that was interesting and fun and created a lot of social media shareable moments for people, But a lot of people did turn it off, in part because it was so limited. He added that the primary focus of the new mode is to make AR “part of the gameplay in a way that is unique and fun.”
