Today is Wednesday, April 1, 2020. Here’s what you need to know:
The HQ Trivia app has returned after being shut down two months ago.
A notification was sent out to trivia players who didn’t uninstall the game — announcing the game would go live at 9 p.m. ET on Sunday evening. The notification was followed by a tweet from HQ CEO Rus Yusupov, confirming the return. The live trivia show made its resurrection with a $1000 game hosted by Matt Richards, the last host before the game was shut down in February. During the live show, Richards thanked the anonymous investor who provided the funding needed to resume operations.
Less than two months ago, Yusupov layed off the company’s 25 employees and sent a note stating HQ would cease operations. It is not confirmed if the game will produce more episodes at this time.
