If you’re a gamer, chances are, you’ve noticed how Google is missing a really good gaming platform to incorporate all users. Now, however, it looks like that may change.

According to a leak from Android Police, an APK (Android program file) teardown leads us to think that there may be some changes coming to Android gaming. The APK hints towards a hub for gaming that includes multiplayer support, in-game chat, lobbies, leaderboards, and achievements.

According to AP:

The games service probably has nothing to do with Google Glass; Glass can’t run complex apps. The Glass team accidentally shipped the full suite of Google Play Services with their new app, which is not normal. This included a never-before-seen backend for an extensive multiplayer gaming service, with just about every gaming feature you could possibly imagine.
