Pokémon Go creator Niantic is streamling its operations to focus on key priorities.
In a statement to The Verge, Niantic says it has decided to drop some projects and reduce the workforce by 8% to focus on key priorities. Bloombergs reports about 85 to 90 employees were affected.
The key priorities include Pokémon Go, a select set of new experiences, and the Lightship platform. Niantic added that “this increased focus” and “strong core business” put the company in a good position to survive the economic uncertainty and continue investing in the future of AR.
