Kim Kardashian: Hollywood shuts down after a decade

The Kim Kardashian mobile video game, Hollywood, shuts down after a decade. The free role-playing game launched in 2014, had its players greeted with a message alert stating that the game “no longer offers in-app purchases and has been removed from app stores,” reportedly.

The game, developed by Glu Mobile the latter being acquired by EA or Electronic Arts since 2021, allows players to increase their reputation through the ultimate goal of getting into Hollywood’s A-list celebrities. Players also get to make appearances at clubs, book modelling jobs, go out on dates, apply for acting jobs and purchase accessories, clothing and energy through in-app currency called ‘K-stars’ or by watching ads. Other members of Kim’s family like Kris Jenner and Khloe Kardashian were featured appearances. 

Although sign-ups and new installs were denied by developers, a post on the Glu Mobile’s forum read that gamers will still be able to play and purchase using the in-game currency till April 8, after which servers will be shut down. VIP subscribers will have to manually cancel their subscriptions.  Reportedly, 2016 data by Forbes revealed that Hollywood had made around $160 million in two years and over 45 million downloads. 

Kim Kardashian:Hollywood’s success inspired other artists like Britney Spears, Nickey Minaj, Katy Perry and Taylor Swift to come up with their own games.
