POKEMON Go fans can expect some big new AR updates, as Niantic receives some great news.
Pokemon Go developer Niantic has been given a big cash boost that could help to improve the game.
Niantic has managed to secure an additional $200 million in funding, as companies like Spark Capital, Founders Fund, Meritech, Javelin Venture Partners, You & Mr Jones and NetEase invest cash.
The funds will help Niantic make long-term investments in augmented reality.
This will not only benefit Pokemon Go, but will also boost the technology used in upcoming AR game Harry Potter Wizards Unite.
As part of the deal, Spark Capital's Megan Quinn will join the Niantic board.
"We are very, very excited to welcome the Niantic Labs team to the Spark Capital portfolio," Quinn tweets. "We believe John Hanke & the team are building an incredibly important company at the intersection of AR and real world location."
