Several features of Google‘s new social network are quite similar to Facebook features, and rumor has it that the two will become even more similar with time.

According to Engadget, Google Plus’s source code reveals that a social gaming network may be in the works.

Facebook has had major success with social games like Farmville and Mafia Wars, and it’s likely that Google will take a cue from its biggest competitor in the social space.

In 2010, Google invested over $100 million into Zynga, the social gaming giant that has enjoyed staggering profits from its partnership with Facebook. Engadget predicts that Google’s payoff for that investment may well come in the form of Google+ Games. Zynga is expected to make its initial public offering any day now.

The Google+ source code also indicated that Google may introduce a feature called Questions, which will let users ask and answer questions with each other, similar to Facebook’s Q&A feature of the same name.

Multiple sources also reported to All Things D that Google+ Games are on the way. A Facebook spokesperson, however, was a bit more vague.

“It’s important to keep in mind this is an ongoing project and this is just the beginning,” the spokesperson said. “We plan to add a lot of features and functionality to Google+ over time. We’re just excited to get started.”
