HQ Trivia shuts down, leaving us with more questions than answers


The app launched in 2017 and gained a massive following the next year by summoning users twice a day for 15-minute video segments and the chance to win cash prizes by correctly answering questions.


Paired with an eccentric comedic host, Scott Rogowsky, the addictive trivia game easily topped the App Store charts.


One of HQ Trivia’s more notable public relation nightmares came after controversial entrepreneur Peter Thiel was revealed as a financial backer .


In a company-wide email, obtained by CNN, Yusupov said “lead investors are no longer willing to fund the company, and so effective today, HQ will cease operations and move to dissolution.”


Ultimately, all efforts failed despite Yusupov’s incentive to “find additional investors and partners to support the expansion of the company,” according to CNN.


HQ Trivia did not immediately return request for comment from Digital Trends on whether players will still awarded the cash prizes they accrued in the game.
