Pokemon trainers looking to get their first real details about Pokemon GO outside of promotional trailers will be disappointed to learn that Nintendo has cancelled the GDC presentation for the game. The official event page on the GDC tittle has simply been updated to include“CANCELLED” in the title.
In a statement issued to GameSpot about the abrupt event cancellation Niantec CEO John Hanke explained that they chose to cancel the highly anticipated event to focus on the Pokemon GO beta.
“We have decided to forego our GDC talk on Pokemon Go in order to focus on getting the product ready for beta test and launch. As much as we hate to disappoint those in the industry attending GDC, we feel our time and energy right now are best spent on making sure every aspect of the product is where we want it to be,”
Pokemon Go is expected to release later this year for Android and iOS devices.
