Last July, Niantic exploded on to the scene with Pokemon Go. A previously unknown developer with a single cult hit suddenly became one of the most well-known entities in the industry virtually overnight. Although Pokemon Go didn't have quite the longevity that fans were hoping it might, the game is still drawing a crowd (as evidenced by the recent Global Catch Challenge), and Niantic has now been tapped to build a Harry Potter AR game.
But despite all the success, Niantic has never forgotten about Ingress. Niantic's first mobile game, Ingress, never got the attention that Pokemon Go did, but Pokemon Go never would have existed without it. And now, five years after its release, Niantic has revealed that it will overhaul the game and release it as Ingress Prime.
