Pokémon Go was scheduled to be featured and shown off for the first time in a presentation at this month’s Game Developers Conference, but Nintendo has reportedly canceled the presentation.
Scheduled for release in 2016, the mobile game from Nintendo is an augmented reality version of Pokémon that would allow you to encounter and “catch” various Pokémon depending on your location thanks to use of cell phone GPS and an optional wearable device.
“We have decided to forego our GDC talk on Pokémon GO in order to focus on getting the product ready for beta test and launch,” Niantic CEO John Hanke told Game Informer. “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.”
When do you think we’ll get our real first look at Pokémon Go?
