Ultima creator Richard Garriott took to Twitter to discuss why it was that he stopped playing Pokemon Go.
Garriot took to Twitter to explain why it was that he quit playing the popular mobile game. Garriott gave a number of valid reasons including the game’s grind and a lack of compelling content.
Time to grind level went past weeks, lack of new/varied content, realization of "steady state end game" saw no real differentiated strategy. https://t.co/qekkhhWV17— Richard Garriott (@RichardGarriott) October 30, 2016
Garriott may have left the game but Pokemon Go as a whole remains extremely popular. A recent report claimed the game brings in about $2 million every day from its in-game microtransactions. Another report also states that the game made roughly $600 million in its first 90 days; which if true is a record for any game ever.
Pokemon Go currently has a new Halloween based event that is going on right now which has helped propel the game back to the top of the app store charts for top grossing apps.
In the future, Niantic has teased new features for the game including a multiplayer battle mode. The company has also previously stated that when the game launched it was low on features as to avoid confusing new players (and to rid them of any enjoyment while playing ).
