    NO WAY!!! The Game Center App is Dead in iOS 10

    iOS 10 was announced at WWDC today, and the iOS 10 beta has already been seeded to developers. One of the big features is that some stock apps can now be deleted, and reinstalled from the App Store. But what's interesting is that one app in particular is permanently deleted: Game Center. The specific Game Center app is gone in iOS 10 beta 1

    From Touch Arcade:

    The service itself hasn't gone away, as Apple says in the iOS 10 What's New notes, emphasis added:
    The Game Center app has been removed.

    If your game implements GameKit features, it must also implement the interface behavior necessary for the user to see these features. For example, if your game supports leaderboards, it could present a GKGameCenterViewController object or read the data directly from Game Center to implement a custom user interface.

    A new account type, implemented by the GKCloudPlayer class, supports iCloud-only game accounts.

    Game Center provides a new generalized solution for managing persistent storage of data on Game Center.
    A game session (GKGameSession) has a list of players who are the session’s participants.
    Your game’s implementation defines when and how a participant stores or retrieves data from the server or exchanges data between players. Game sessions can often replace existing turn-based matches, real-time matches, and persistent save games,
    and also enable other models of interaction between participants.

    Interesting stuff. The service itself has had login issues for a while before 9.3.2 came along and fixed them.
    The question is this: how will we manage friend requests?

    But here's the really interesting question: if Apple's killing the Game Center app, how long does the service have for this world?

    I really hope Game Center's default interface is not gone. Having to hand code and sort that data would be a pain. I also tend to use Game Center's app for checking if achievements were posted or for seeing what other's are doing. I have zero desire to make a Ui for player's to be able to see that sort of thing in each game I make.

    Maybe they'll just cede to google's play games service instead.

    I don't think you have anything to worry about. They announced support for legacy games already on the appstore. My bigger concern is more about still being able to call up the leaderboard UI. But there has been no signs of it being removed yet. The functionality of GC isn't going away, only the separate app.

    Tuna: did GC leaderboards play heavily into your game?

    no - Leaderboards are not a major part - matchplay is the big deal... this game is 100% match play.
