Today, we are announcing that Field Trip will be shutting down service later this year. It is bittersweet because Field Trip was the first product that Niantic created, and it paved the way for our games to follow: Ingress, Pokémon GO, and Harry Potter: Wizards Unite. In many ways, Field Trip was the earliest manifestation of our mission: explore the world, make new friends, and get out and exercise.
We know some people are still using Field Trip and will be disappointed, and we’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support. But we need to prioritize our work so that we can focus on amazing real-world AR experiences that serve the many millions of players around the world. This could include a reimagined version of Field Trip down the line.
Here is what this means for Field Trip users:
- The Field Trip app is no longer available for download on the App Store and Google Play.
- Field Trip will officially shut down services later this year after which it will no longer be supported.
We hope you still enjoy Field Trip while it’s still here, and thanks again for adventuring with us!
—The Niantic team
