HQ Trivia returns after February shutdown – CNET


It’s back.

HQ Trivia

Live mobile trivia game HQ Trivia made a surprise return Sunday, after shutting down and laying off its employees in February. An investor provided the funding it needed for a comeback, according to the Wall Street Journal, and a push alert let people know they could play again at 9 p.m. ET.

The game’s co-founder, Rus Yusupov, confirmed shortly after the shutdown that HQ Trivia would “live on” and the game’s Twitter account offered a rumble of activity in the form of an ellipsis last week.

More than 100,000 people logged in as Sunday’s game kicked off, the Journal noted, and HQ Trivia said it’d donate $100,000 to World Central Kitchen, which is offering food relief across the US in the midst of the coronavirus outbreak.
