You dont need to play pokemon GO to be a phone zombie, everyone has become one themselves addicted to there phones. Look around you will see everyone sunk there heads into the phone as they walk and travel and sit on the boring trains as a result no one is social anymore. Everyone lives in cyberspace now.

Between July 2022 and March 2023, Sensor Tower data shows Niantic made an average of $70 million in gross in-app purchase revenue each month. In the three months since the remote raid pass price increase, Niantic has made an average of $53 million per month.

If you need to lay off people and are shelving and canceling release, your staff ain't the problem, you've got a sh!te CEO. Games are always a hit one day and a flop the next.

Make the next one something topical like Pokemon GhOsn. Track down and subdue corporate bosses. There is a boardroom stage, an auto trade show zone, two airport stages--arrivals and departures, and the overseas Interpol challenge.
