US software developer Niantic launched Ingress Prime in November - a rework of its original augmented reality mobile game. At the time, the company said it was hoping the newer features in the game could eventually carry across to Pokémon GO. One feature in particular was the new prestige system, allowing players to roll back to level one and gain unique benefits.

Since its chat with Eurogamer, Niantic has been interviewed by German press about the future plans for GO. Once again, the question about raising the cap beyond level 40 was raised. On this occasion, the developer said it currently had no plans to adjust or raise the current level cap, despite the fact more and more players were reaching this in-game milestone by the day. Hopefully a system similar to the prestige one is added at some point in the near future.

Would you like to see the level cap in GO raised? Are you still playing this game? Have you revisited it since the release of Let’s Go? Tell us below.
