Last year, almost to the day, we learned about Niantic's plans for an augmented reality Harry Potter game.

Tuesday, November 6th, 2018

Back in December of 2017 we learned that Niantic would be rebooting its aging augmented reality mobile game Ingress into something called Ingress Prime.

Niantic Kids Parent Portal brings new child-oversight controls to ‘Pokémon Go’

Thursday, August 16th, 2018

"Pokémon Go" developer Niantic Labs has announced that it's partnered with kid-focused web service company SuperAwesome to create a new platform called Niantic Kids Parent Portal. With it, parents can manage accounts for their kids, "review and approve [their] child’s permissions," and control what information about the child is shared.

Aside from location data — which generally isn't visible to other players — not a whole lot of personal information is shared in "Pokémon Go." Still, it's reasonable that parents would want some extra peace of mind about young kids' online gaming experiences.

Niantic acquires ‘Blade Runner: Revelations’ and ‘Marvel Strikeforce’ developer Seismic Games

Wednesday, July 18th, 2018

"Pokémon Go" developer Niantic Labs has sure been keeping itself busy. The company has announced that it's acquired Seismic Games, developer of "Blade Runner: Revelations" and "Marvel Strikeforce." The studio employs veterans of some big names in gaming like EA and Activision.

Niantic trades on augmented reality offerings. Seismic isn't known for AR games, although its "Blade Runner: Revelations" is a Daydream VR title. In a blog post, Niantic wrote that it sees "the addition of Seismic Games as a significant accelerant for realizing [its] vision of an operating system that bridges the digital and the physical worlds." The use of the term "operating system" is curious, but it seems to be in reference to the studio's Real World Platform.

‘Ingress: The Animation’ anime series coming to Netflix in October

Saturday, July 7th, 2018

Before it became world-famous for Pokemon Go, Niantic's only mobile game was Ingress. It was released in 2012, and the primary goal is to take control of portals located next to landmarks in the real world. Even though Ingress never achieved the massive level of popularity that Pokemon Go hit at its peak, the game still has a large amount of active players.

In a strange turn of events, Niantic announced that an anime series based on the game is being developed by Yuhei Sakuragi. Takeshi Honda, art director for Neon Genesis Evangelion, is also involved.

‘Pokémon Go’ developer Niantic shows off AR tech that lets Pikachu hide behind real-world objects

Thursday, June 28th, 2018

An annoying but understandable quirk about the current state of most augmented reality applications is that virtual items imposed on an AR view don't relate to the world in a believable way: they just sit on top of a scene, regardless of whether or not real-world objects should appear in front of them. "Pokémon Go" developer Niantic showed off its impressive solution to this problem today in what it's calling Codename: Niantic Occlusion — using of course, Pokémon.
