SAN FRANCISCO – Tech's other hot IPO candidate is hurtling toward its day on Wall Street.

King.com, the London-based maker of Candy Crush Saga, has quietly filed an S-1 document with the Securities and Exchange Commission worth an estimated $5 billion, according to a report in London's Daily Telegraph, citing an anonymous source.

USA TODAY confirmed the report from a source, who asked not to be named because they are not authorized to speak on behalf of King.
