[SPECULTATION] Will We Have a Pokemon UNITE Launch Date in the Next 24 Hours? Or Are We Too Hopeful
2 months ago
The reason for all this excitement? TiMi Studios is the main developer behind the highly anticipated mobile MOBA, Pokémon Unite, which they've been keeping very quiet about since the Canadian beta in March. Only recently has their Twitter been more active by giving the community small teases such as replying to Zyonik and Caleb Peng’s tweets about the game.
Nothing is more exciting than finalizing a reveal trailer of a franchise beloved for decades. 🔥— TiMi Studio Group (@timistudios) May 14, 2021
Or when replying to our very own JJ-Kun's Days Counted since they've said anything about Unite specifically.

This is my tweet waiting for Pokemon Unite to get OFFICIALLY released
Now that I've gotten your hopes up, it's time to start the real speculation. I'll start off with TiMi's activity on Twitter: an announcement of a partnership with Xbox and the tweet about finishing a reveal video. On Thursday May 13th, TiMi announced a partnership with Xbox Game Studios to "jointly create excellent game content" and bring more games to more players.
There's already speculation that the only reason for that would be to bring mobile games to the Xbox consoles the same way Nintendo has done with the Switch and Unite. Others are speculating that the announcement and the tweet on Friday are related and we could be seeing the Halo franchise come to mobile. In my opinion, that's some heavy speculation and doesn't seem likely.
Following on, Sunday May 16th, Tencent will be hosting their annual game convention where they will reportedly announce over 60 new titles.
