Niantic Responds to Criticism Over Pokémon GO Update

Niantic Labs, the creators of the cultural phenomenon Pokémon GO, have responded to massive criticism over recent updates to the game that have removed multiple features, saying:

The update hosted numerous changes, causes many players to demand refunds over their in-app purchases.

The tracking feature was perhaps the best part of Pokémon GO, as the gym-battling system leaves traditional Pokémon fans wanting more. It will be interesting to see how Niantic goes forward from this, as this could be make-or-break for the game’s continued popularity.

Perhaps the next move for the developer would be releasing a Legendary to garner more interest in the game, and cause players to temporarily forget that they are unhappy with the changes.
