I have been playing Niantic games since the Ingress beta. Niantic is a great company, and John Hanke has been revolutionizing whatever he works on. Whether its changing the way maps work (google earth and google maps) or the way you sightsee (Filed Trip), or the way mobile games work (Ingress, Endgame: Proving Ground, Pokemon Go). However I do have some fears about the game.
WB Games San Francisco, Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc., and/or PORTKEY GAMES, hold back Niantic from doing what they want with the game. The way TPC, Game Freak, Creatures, and Nintendo has done with Niantic and Pokemon Go.
They (all companies involved) will focus on a gimmicky gameplay vs an in-depth story and lore or ignoring cannon lore. I really am hopping for a new story that is cannon, if it includes new ways to play even better. However not at the cost of story and lore.
Do you have any fears about the game?
