Microsoft is expected to unveil a new “Pokémon Go” app on Android this week, according to an internal memo seen by The American Conservatives.
“The Pokémon Go app is coming,” a Microsoft employee wrote.
“We can’t tell you when it will launch, but we’re excited about it.”
Microsoft is currently using the word “coming” to describe the “Pokémon GO” app, but The American Conservator reports the company may be looking to “launch it as soon as next week” according to the memo.
The app has not yet been officially released.
Microsoft’s move to make the app free was first reported by the Wall Street Journal.
The “Pokémon” game uses a real-world augmented reality app called “Pokemon Go,” which is currently available for iOS and Android devices.
Microsoft is also rumored to be planning to make its own “Pokémon Play” app for Windows 10 PCs.
The company did not respond to The American Council on Science and Technology’s request for comment.
Microsoft will be unveiling its “Pokémon,” “Pokemon Trainer” and “Pokémon Gold and Silver” apps on Wednesday at an event in New York City.
Microsoft previously announced its “Pokemon GO” apps will be free until the end of the year.
The Pokémon GO app is currently free on Android devices and has been available for a few months.
Google has said the app is free until September 10.
Microsoft has not released any official word about its plans for the new app.
