Kim Kardashian’s Mobile Game Is Going Down
January 5, 2024 / By Zunair Tahir / Tech News
Kim Kardashian: Hollywood, the celebrity is closing down her popular smartphone game, which she released nearly ten years ago.
Players have been increasing their notoriety and moving up the social scale since 2014, realizing their A-list ambitions.
The 43-year-old made appearances in the game with her family members Kris Jenner and Khloé Kardashian.
Kim, however, told US magazine People that she would “forever be inspired” by the game’s community and confirmed the closure.
Hollywood was released by the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star in collaboration with mobile game company Glu.
Although it was a free-to-play game, users could buy K-stars, the in-game money, to advance in events, modeling, and dating.
“I’m so grateful from the bottom of my heart to everyone who has loved and played Kim Kardashian: Hollywood in the past 10 years,” she stated.
Although creating the game had “meant so much” to her, she stated that it was now “time to focus that energy into other passions”.
Though the game is no longer available in the Apple and Android app stores, users can continue to use its features till April 8th.
A countdown ticking down to the game’s closure has been added, according to recent pictures.
Hollywood apparently made more than $160 million after overcoming early skepticism after its premiere.
Gaming website Polygon recognized it as a paradigm for “mobile games unapologetically tailored toward young women” and included it among the top 100 games of the decade.
For further information, AAC has reached out to Kim Kardashian and Electronic Arts (EA), the company that purchased Glu Mobile.
