About Niantic

Adventures on foot with others

At Niantic, we leverage mobile devices and our understanding of maps to create new kinds of experiences based on three core principles:

  • Exploration and discovery of new places
  • Exercise
  • Real world social interaction with other people

Our belief is that the combination of maps and gaming can make the world even more magical and enticing for people.

Originally formed within Google in 2010, we became an independent company in 2015 with a strong group of investors including Nintendo, The Pokémon Company, and Alsop Louie Partners. Our current products include pioneering the global-control game Ingress, and record-breaking Augmented Reality (AR) game Pokémon GO. Our third product, Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, is currently in development.
