Pokemon GO Devs Cancel GDC confrence 2

The founder and CEO of Niantic, the developers behind Pokemon GO have apparently cancelled their session at the 2016 Game Developers Conference.

According to the GDC website, Niantic’s “Gotta Catch Em All: Pokemon GO and Real World Gaming” session was recently cancelled because, as founder and CEO John Hanke told Gamespot, “We have decided to forego our GDC talk on Pokemon Go in order to focus on getting the product ready for beta test and launch.”

Hanke also said, “As much as we hate to disappoint those in the industry attending GDC, we feel our time and energy right now are best spent on making sure every aspect of the product is where we want it to be.”

The “Gotta Catch Em All: Pokemon GO and Real World Gaming” promised a first-hand, in-depth look at how players are interacting and exploring the world with one another through Pokemon GO, the collaborative approach to design and development for the game and the next evolution of augmented reality and real-world mobile gameplay experiences.
