Kim Kardashian: Hollywood shuts down after 10 years

Kim Kardashian: Hollywood

Kim Kardashian’s mobile roleplaying game, Kim Kardashian: Hollywood, is shutting down nearly a decade since it released.

The smartphone game, developed by GLU Mobile, is shutting down on April 8th, though it has since been removed from both iOS and Android.

“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,” Kim said to TMZ. “This journey has meant so much to me but I’ve realized that it’s time to focus that energy into other passions. I want to thank the Glu team and the many people behind the scenes who have worked diligently on making it a success. I will be forever inspired by this community that we built together.”

Anyone that had the game prior to it being pulled can still play until April, though they’re now greeted with an alert that the shutdown is coming, alongside an in-game timer of the shutdown.

To coincide with the shutdown, in-game purchases for Kim Kardashian: Hollywood have also been stopped as of today. The game let players explore the Hollywood scene with the goal of becoming a superstar, gaining fans and doing various things along the way like acting, modeling, and even dating.

The game made $1.6 million in just five days after it released way back in 2014, despite mixed reviews. Considering its decade run, it probably made decent money through the years.
