Why Ingress Prime?

With all the news[1] about the forthcoming Ingress Prime, it’s worth taking a moment to ask, “Why is Niantic creating Ingress Prime anyway? What’s wrong with the Ingress we have?”[2]

Probably the most compelling reason for the new Ingress client is the fact that Ingress Classic is powered by RoboVM, a technology which was used to write apps in Java that could be run on Android or iOS. Xamarin acquired RoboVM in October 2015, and Microsoft, in turn, acquired Xamarin four months later. Xamarin’s Mono C♯ compiler and related technologies interested Microsoft, but the Java tech… not so much. Two months after the acquisition announcement, Microsoft discontinued RoboVM. Niantic had a problem: Ingress would not be able to continue to evolve with mobile platforms while built on dead tech. The Ingress Prime client is essentially a complete re-write on the Unity platform, like Pokémon GO. This allows it to continue to grow as mobile technology advances. Read More

Camp Navarro 2018 Announcement

Niantic has officially announced[1] their second annual Camp Navarro event for 2018! The event will take place during Memorial day weekend, May 24-27, at the same campsite as this last years in Navarro, Ca. Though little is known about the event currently, we can assume it will be like this last years event where agents will be separated into teams to create a number of interactive portals. A major difference so far is that we will be given an extra day at the campsite! As the date gets closer, we should see more updates from Niantic about the event. At this time there is no form to sign but be prepared agents, there are plenty of teams forming already! Read More
