Following the news that Google is integrating its Google+ social network into a new game services initiative, the company has revealed that it will close down its ill-fated Google+ Games service. Google added games to Google+ back in 2011, offering a selection of web-based games curated by the Google team. However, it later became obvious that the move wasn't going so well, and a number of key partners pulled out. Now Google will kill the service on June 30, 2013, and is advising those players who have unused payments in Google+ games that data will be migrated to alternative destination websites for some games. However, for certain games that aren't being migrated, you'll have to spend your credits before June 30. You can find a list of developers and contact information in the Google+ Games support page.
