This is 100% true. I have the press email sent to me straight from the PR team that handles Niantic's press releases. It's the same email address/point of contact that I've been working with for years. The only way this could be false information is if the person that put the press release together was given incorrect info, but they're yet to offer a retraction.

thanks for the reply, that’s what we heard and people posting around involving global community managers etc. with my friends we found strange that only your site mentioned the event yet and niantic didn’t announce anything . did you try to ask for an update?
