Kardashian legacy

Launched in 2014, the free-to-play game allowed users to ascend the fame ladder to the A-List by making real purchases for virtual items such as clothes and hairstyles. The app paved the way for similar ventures by other celebrities, including Taylor Swift and Britney Spears. Despite its closure, the game had a remarkable financial run, with Forbes reporting $160 million in revenue by July 2016, just two years after its launch.

What will happen exactly?

While new installations are no longer possible, Glu assured existing players that the game will remain accessible on their devices until April 8. During this period, players can continue using any existing in-game virtual currency. The developer expressed appreciation for the support received over the years, assuring players they’ll always be on the A-List in the memories of the game’s legacy. As Kim Kardashian’s mobile game bids farewell, it leaves behind a digital footprint that defined an era in celebrity-driven gaming.
