Pokemon Go Has 65 Million Monthly Active Users, As Dev Teases New Features

"There's a lot more to come."


Pokemon Go's popularity might have dropped since launch, but it is still posting jaw-dropping numbers when it comes to player figures. Niantic Labs boss John Hanke said at the London Games Festival this week that the game still sees a whopping 65 million-plus monthly active users.

In other news about the game, Pokemon Go took home Best Mobile and Handheld Game at the BAFTAs this week.

"We owe the continued momentum and recognition to the dedicated players exploring the world and creating adventures together in Pokemon Go," Niantic said in a blog post. "Each and every award Pokemon Go has won is a testament to the game's awesome and supportive community."

Niantic also teased that Pokemon Go is only still at the start of its life, suggesting many more updates are on the way. He teased that some kind of "new cooperative" gameplay is coming.

"We're still at the beginning of the journey and there's a lot more to come. With spring arriving in the northern hemisphere, players can look forward to all new cooperative social gameplay experiences in Pokemon Go that will give Trainers new and exciting reasons to get back into the sunshine."

A trading system for Pokemon Go is believed to be in the works as one of the new features coming to the game.
