Pokemon Go Game Director Concerned Over Recent Abuse


It has been a rough couple of weeks, even months, over at Niantic, with many, many mistakes that had a negative outcome.

Recently, Michael Steranka, the Pokemon Go game director has shared with the public that he has been dealing with abuse towards him and his family. Eurogamer has reported that Niantic’s employees have all been under “attack”, and not just any attack. Many have gone to the extent that they have personally abused several workers.

Here is the abuse targeted at Michael Steranka:

Please, stop the abuse. We do not condone this type of behavior directed toward Niantic workers, so we urge you to think twice before clicking on the “send” button.
