You read that right, Swifties! A Taylor Swift mobile game app is under way!

A blank space in the pop singer's illustrious resumé will soon be filled up in late 2016. The official Taylor Swift website has confirmed that T-Swizzle has collaborated with Glu Mobile to create a "new one-of-a-kind mobile game for smartphones and tablet devices."

It's still unclear if the game will feature a white horse or Tim McGraw since Glu Mobile has yet to reveal specific gameplay details. However, the company did promise it will share more information soon, as per Variety.

"We realize that Taylor and her global fan base expect a new and highly differentiated mobile gaming experience," said Glu Mobile CEO Niccolo de Masi. "Glu is equally committed to designing never before seen gameplay elements that utilize Taylor's unique creativity."

The 26-year old American singer-songwriter is the latest celebrity to partner with Glu Mobile. The company is looking to expand its brand even more, after successfully launching a Kim Kardashian mobile game in June 2014.

Mashable reported that "Kim Kardashian: Hollywood" grossed $43 million in its first three months, despite being a free-to-play content.

The mobile game had its fair share of backlash as parents grew concerned about its payment option. They feared their kids would unintentionally incur huge debts while picking the right Kim K. outfit.

In an interview on the Today show with Matt Lauer, Kardashian reminded parents to keep tabs on their children, especially when they play mobile games that include in-game purchases.

"You just have to make sure that your parental controls are all set," she said. "I think you just have to be responsible, and don't have your credit card linked to where your kid can just spend if they want to."

Meanwhile, "Katy Perry Pop!" didn't garner as much attention as its predecessor when it released in late 2015. However, Katy-Kat fans did complain it had too many bugs and was a mere rip off of the Kardashian game.

Perez Hilton stated just before Christmas that "Katy Perry Pop!" ranked 54th on the App Store's most trending free games. It was also a cellar- dweller on the Google Play Store at number 117.

Taking everything into consideration, Swifties can only hope that the "Fearless" singer will be more like Kim Kardashian than Katy Perry, in the realm of mobile gaming at least.

As of the moment, Taylor Swift's upcoming mobile game has a slim chance of flopping since the Pennsylvania native has approximately 74 million followers on Facebook, 70 million on Twitter and 65 million on Instagram.
