EA, Wooga pulling games from Google Plus
Posted by max at June 17th, 2012
PopCap and Wooga-developed games will disappear from Google’s social media platform, Google+. Wooga shut down Monster World prior to May 1, issuing their own “goodbye” to Google+. Electronic Arts will remove Bejeweled Blitz from the service on Monday in order to “redeploy our resources to other adaptations of Bejeweled,” a PopCap spokesman told All Things D.
A Wooga customer care representative said the company “decided to remove certain games from Google+ because we have a much larger following on Facebook and they are active users.” Wooga will remove Bubble Island and Diamond Dash from Google+ on July 1.
PopCap’s spokesman added that “Google is a valuable gaming partner for PopCap and EA, and we’ll continue to develop for Google platforms.”
