Whenever you're ready

This year's Game Developers Conference takes place later this month, and Pokémon GO developer Niantic was due to hold a talk on March 14th about its latest game.

Studio CEO John Hanke was supposed to give attendees "a first-hand, in-depth look at how players are interacting and exploring the world with one another through Pokemon GO," with special emphasis being given to "the collaborative approach to design and development for the game and the next evolution of augmented reality and real-world mobile gameplay experiences".

However, the half-hour session is now marked as "cancelled" on the official GDC site. No reason has been given so far, and it is not known if the talk will simply take place at another time during the GDC event.

In case you were wondering, Pokémon GO is a smartphone title which takes the million-selling franchise into the realm of augmented reality. It is due for release later this year.
