Updated below with a brief statement from the developer, Niantic.
And so it begins again. All the kids are talking about this awesome new app and those of us with a Windows Phone in our hands are looking at it despondently. Well, some of us are, anyway. We're talking, of course, about Pokemon Go, the new mobile game that's about as you'll ever get to actually being in the Pokemon universe.
For kids, it's a blast. For the older kids who used to be kids 20 years ago when this stuff first hit the big time, it's a blast. Or rather it's a blast if you have an iPhone or one of the ridiculous amount of Android phones. And that's without even getting into the regional availability right now.
Of course, so far there's no real story. Sure, there's an online petition that a ton of people have signed, but does anyone truly think that such a thing would ever make a difference? There have been no hints from the developer, Niantic, that they're even paying passing glance to other platforms. The game that came before, Ingress, never made it to Windows Phone, either. Right now they're struggling to keep the servers going on what they do have, for one.
So, that's the end then, right? Well, not quite. We're not exactly confident that Pokemon Go will ever show up on Windows 10, but so many folks are clearly asking and interested in it, that we've at least asked the question. We've fired off a very polite note to the guys and gals at Niantic asking that all important question: Will we ever see Pokemon Go on Windows 10?
Hopefully we'll get a response one way or the other so we can answer it once and for all. Stay tuned.
Update: Well, we had a response from Niantic. It doesn't give us good news, but it also doesn't say 100% exactly that it'll never, ever happen.
We have no comment or info to share on Windows at this time. Sorry I can't be of more help.
So, I guess we'll have to wait and see.
In the meantime, if you want to see what all the fuss is about, our good buddies at iMore have literally everything you could ever want or need to know.
