The headquarters that created the once popular HQ Trivia app is closed, and its 25 employees are laid off, according to CNN Business .
HQ CEO Rus Yusupov has reportedly sent a note to employees who announced that the headquarters would cease operations. In the note, he said that there was an offer "from an established company" to acquire the headquarters that had a deadline of tomorrow, but that the potential acquirer "suddenly changed its position".

The HQ Trivia app, launched in 201
HQ also tried a variety of ideas to keep users engaged in HQ Trivia, e.g. B. Extra lives for playing multiple games in a row and a personal event with $ 10,000 in prize money. And in 2018, HQ released a second live game, a Wheel of Fortune-style game called HQ Words. However, it seems that the company's efforts weren't enough to get users interested in its games after the novelty ended.
The company was founded by two co-founders of Vine, Yusupov and Colin Kroll. Kroll, who was formerly CEO of headquarters, died in December 2018 of an accidental drug overdose.
