Good news for iPhone gamers, Swifties, and fans of Kim Kardashian: Hollywood — pop superstar Taylor Swift is partnering with Glu Mobile on a “new, one-of-a-kind digital gaming experience,” which is slated for release in late 2016.

Glu Mobile is no stranger to celebrity games. Not only are they the company behind Kardashian’s uber-successful app, but they also released Katy Perry’s game in 2015.

While no details about the game itself were included in a release, it does seem like it may diverge a bit from Kardashian’s and Perry’s, which both take the player on a journey toward stardom. “We realize that Taylor and her global fan base expect a new and highly differentiated mobile gaming experience,” says Glu Chairman and CEO Niccolo de Masi in a release. “Glu is equally committed to designing never before seen gameplay elements that utilize Taylor’s unique creativity. Accordingly, we will spend the required development time to ensure this innovation is achieved.”

No word yet if the game will involve songwriting, collecting squad members, or adopting cats, though.
