Grand Theft Auto will be a Pokemon Go Clone?

This rumor has just passed my ears.   If it has already been known or confirmed, then excuse my ignorance.  But it seems that Nintendo's success (9 billion in a few days)  has now started a trend that we will see in the near future. 

GTA  has been rumored to be in development as a Pokemon Go clone.  Doing battles and missions in your area using google maps.  This is just the beginning of the future of gaming where immersion of our actually physical surroundings is thrown into the game. 

This is crazy.

My son has decided to not play Pokemon Go! as of yesterday. He  is not comfortable with the game's roots, its beginnings. However, he  loves the concept of an exergame--a game that involves participation in outdoors, in the real world, and with augmented reality.  We are both looking forward to the release of  Microsoft's Hololens:

While doing research on other exer-games out there, we came across the information on Ingress--Niantic's game almost exactly like Pokemon Go--but for some reason, it just didn't make the big times like Pokemon Go did.

Needless to say, my son now has the downloaded game of Ingress on his phone and is enjoying it very much in the real world!
