Killed By Niantic

NBA All World

June 2022 - June 2023

Missed The Basket

Someone thought kids today needed to play one-on-one basketball in an AR simulation instead of on the court. Like a real NBA All-Star, you wandered your neighborhood, searching for sneakers and other gear drops, while playing mini-games.

NBA All-World was launched globally in January 2023.

On June 29, 2023 Niantic announced plans to sunset NBA All World during an organizational update:

Specifically, this means we will be closing our LA studio, reducing our game platform team and making additional reductions across the company. As a result, we will be sunsetting NBA All-World and stopping production on Marvel: World of Heroes. This means we are laying off around 230 Niantics.
