There’s been much speculation recently that Google is planning to overhaul the gaming infrastructure available to Android devices using Google services, now it looks like there’s fire to that smoke.
Speculation has been fueled in the past few weeks by the discovery of real-time multiplayer code discovered in the Google Glass APK, followed quickly by Google’s hiring of Noah Falstein as Chief Game Designer.
Adding fuel to the fire, we’ve just recevied the above image from a tipster who says it landed in his mailbox today. Besides reinventing the (specifically-capitalised) Playground, use of the tagline “Let’s play together” also calls to mind multiplayer gaming.
It looks certain Google intends to announce something gaming-related next Wednesday (Thursday morning, Australian time) during the Day 1 Keynote at Google I/O on May 15.
