In recent years, there has been a lot of talk about the game “Pokemon Go.” The game was developed by Niantic, with help from Nintendo and The Pokemon Company. It was released in 2016, and quickly became a sensation. But where did the idea for the game come from?
It turns out that Niantic was inspired by another augmented reality game called “Ingress,” which was also developed by Niantic.
Niantic, the developer of Pokemon Go, is teaming up with Microsoft and Bloomberg Media to create new content for its AR game. The partnership will see Niantic creating new AR experiences based on Bloomberg’s business and financial news content, as well as Microsoft’s Azure cloud computing platform. The two companies will also work together to develop new AR gaming experiences for Microsoft’s HoloLens headset.
