During Ubisoft’s financial conference call for the first quarter of the fiscal year 2016-2017, CEO Yves Guillemot was asked to comment on the performance of Nintendo’s Pokémon Go.

Guillemot mentioned that the folks at Ubisoft are “very impressed” by what Nintendo managed to achieve with its new mobile title, also teasing that Ubisoft has its own augmented reality game in the works.

That said, he explained that it’s not exactly the same kind of product as Pokémon Go, and it’s not coming soon.
