After a impressive rise to world popularity, Bloomberg reports a drop from phone game Pokémon Go’s peak number of 45 million players to a estimated 33 million. That number comes alongside reports that the players who are a still playing, spend less time engaged with the game each day.
Game developer Niantec promises big things coming up in the game’s newest update, but the question is will that bring players back? Especially given the lack of some of the original features promised in the game’s original trailer. Those features include Pokémon trading and battling between players.
While rumors run rampant of next generation Pokèmon arriving or legendary pokèmon being introduced to the game, will this bring players back or will more continue to depart?
