Niantic to Unveil Major Updates to Pokemon Go, New Ingress

As Dronpes from The Silph Road noted, it's good that Hanke refers to the Gen 2 update as the "first major update" since the game was released, automatically qualifying all other updates as "minor" in comparison.

While Niantic look to have a solid roadmap to follow and several more major Pokemon Go updates to release this year, Nintendo have not being resting on their laurels.

If you don't find yourself being enticed by the new offering, there's always the chance of reinvigorating your interest in Pokemon Go with the next major update. Now that Pokemon Go is stable, Niantic can focus on all of the features that weren't ready for launch. "We'll be launching a new version of our original game, Ingress, later this year and we have some other projects that unfortunately I can't talk about today", Hanke said at the event, reassuring fans that more will be known in the coming months.

Hanke also revealed that a new Ingress game is in the works, and can be expected this year. This could be where Legendary Pokemon get introduced into the game. It suggested that the game may receive real-time weather system, such as overcast or rainy.
