Pokémon Go may be coming to Android Wear soon according to Niantic CEO John Hanke. During the September Apple event Hanke announced that the game would be available for Apple Watch users.
After the event Hanke stated that it is likely that the game will also be making its way to other smartwatches in the near future, indicating that the recently announced Apple Watch version of Pokémon Go will also be making its way to Android Wear devices.
"Apple Watch we think is a great vehicle for that. As other devices come on the market – if those are Android Wear devices or if they are devices from other quadrants that are interesting for gameplay and mobility, and being active – we’ll look into supporting those, too." Hanke stated.
In the most recent version of Pokemon Go hackers have found code that suggests that the game may be coming to Android Wear in the near future.
Inside the game new code has been found that has been specifically designed for Android Wear devices. In the code a name of the smartwatch version of the game has also been found: Pokémon Go Plus. The name is similar to Pokemon Go wearable that was announced last month.
The game's developer Niantic has yet to officially confirm the release of the game on Android Wear.
