Apple’s Game Center has been kicking around in iOS 4 Betas with limited functionality available to developers for a while now. But no clear timescale has been given by Apple as to when they plan to launch the service for all to use. And to be fair, developers are still a little confused themselves as to what exactly the plan is for Game Center moving forward.
In the last 24 hours Apple has eased the situation to some degree, and 9TO5Mac reports that it has told developers that they should now find the functionality in their developer account to allow them to setup the necessary metadata for Game Center leaderboards and achievements.
It seems likely that any Apple event in September will probably have some Game Center news making part of the announcements.
