Niantic might start rolling out the surprise project soon

The Pokemon Company has always remained silent about their Sleep project and has never clarified much about it since 2019. However, the leak of the Pokemon Sleep code suggests that Niantic might soon roll out the game, which will have its functionality linked with Pokemon Go. Players will be receiving details while they are sleeping along with special awards in the Go app.

Pokemon Sleep is all about encouraging players to get adequate sleep and track their sleeping behavior. The game was announced back in 2019, but following this, there has been no update on it. There was even an expected release date in 2020, but the developers have maintained their silence since.

This led many fans to believe that the project was discreetly discontinued given the developers neither announced any delay nor an acknowledgement about the game. However, they did register an SSL certificate of Pokemon Sleep in 2021, which makes it seem that the game might still be under development.

There is no guarantee about when this game is releasing and it does not seem likely that it is coming anytime soon. However, from all the above leaks stated, it seems Niantic has it down its pipeline and might roll it out eventually for the players.
