PopCap and Wooga have pulled titles off Google+, less than a year after games launched on the social service. Wooga plans to pull all three titles Bubble Island, Diamond Dash and Monster World, by July 1. PopCap’s only title on the service, Bejeweled Blitz, will be pulled as early as next week. Both firms are pulling the titles due to the lack of support for the social networking service as compared to Facebook. After the pull, 40 games will remain on Google + from makers such as Zynga and Rovio. Thanks, Social Games Observer. Via Polygon.
