Earlier this week, Kim Kardashian West took the stage at Re/code’s Code/Mobile event to discuss all things digital. As the reigning Queen of Social Media, you’d better believe she had a lot to say.
But while most headlines to come out of this talk seem to focus on her love for Blackberry, she revealed an interesting tidbit that doesn’t seem to be getting quite as much attention: there are more Kim Kardashian games in the works.
The Verge provided a liveblog of the half hour conversation between Re/code co-founder Kara Swisher and Kim Kardashian West, which is where you’ll find this key revelation:
What’s next, Swisher asks. Kim says that they’re working on some future games that are “a little bit different.”
Considering the success of the Glu-published Kim Kardashian: Hollywood, it should come as no shock that there are more games coming out of the Kim K brand. But the question is, who will make them?
Gamezebo reached out to a representative from Glu to do a little digging, but received a fairly non-committal “Glu hasn’t announced anything yet.”
While we wouldn’t be surprised to learn that other studios might be trying to court her after the mega-hit that was Kim Kardashian: Hollywood, with her past success and ongoing relationship with Glu (during the talk she discussed timing a Mexico content update with her own vacation plans, as well as upcoming features for the game), we’d be surprised to see her sign on with anybody else.
That said, there aren’t any hard facts out there right now. The only thing we know for certain is this: Kim Kardashian West says that we should see some new (and different) games with her brand on them in the future, and I see no reason to doubt her.
