King Digital Entertainment, the British developer behind the wildly-addictive mobile game Candy Crush, said on Wednesday that it could be valued at up to $7.6 billion in its eagerly-awaited upcoming flotation. The planned listing on the New York Stock Exchange, unveiled last month, is the latest in a series by Internet and gaming firms over the past three years -- the most high-profile being Facebook and Twitter. King said on Wednesday that it was planning an initial public offering of 22.2 million shares each priced at between $21 and $24 a share. Candy Crush -- King's top-seller -- started life as a Facebook game in 2012 but can also be played online and on smartphones.
