Game Over: Google+ Games To Be Shut Down June 30th

Google+ users who enjoy social gaming will soon have to look elsewhere as Google+ games is being shut down. After June 30th, Google+ Games will be officially retired as Google will move forward with one united front, the  Google Play Game Services platform.


Google+ Games launched in the Summer of 2011, but whether it be demographics or just the platform itself, Games continually under-performed. Some developers jumped ship on Google+ Games last year as the adoption on the social network didn’t have a high enough impact on customers.

In an unglamorous announcement, Google directed users who have unused payments to contact the game developer to gather more information. A list of links to the support pages for a handful of developers is included on the page.

For more see the official Google+ announcement.
