Niantic have revealed a whole load of good news for fans of their AR games, as several live events are happening worldwide to bring the communities together, building upon the success of events like Dortmund and Chicago.
"Over the last 7 years, live, real-world events have been central to Niantic's goal in leveraging technology to create interactive experiences that foster exploration and discovery, active and healthy lifestyles and lasting friendships," said Michael Steranka, Senior Manager, Live Events at Niantic.
"Niantic's large-scale real-world events have had a true and clear positive economic impact on tourism, bringing people from around the world together for a weekend of adventure. We were incredibly impressed by the number and quality of entries in the #NianticLive2020 program and, as a result, are excited to announce the addition of Liverpool, Philadelphia, and St. Louis to our live events schedule in 2020."
