Glu Collaborates with Disney on Mobile Game
Glu Mobile Inc, a leading developer and publisher of mobile games, today announced it is collaborating with Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media on the development of an upcoming mobile game. The game is expected to include characters and stories from across Disney and Pixar franchises.
“Disney is an iconic and globally-recognized brand that transcends many demographics,” said Nick Earl, Glu’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “I am thrilled to announce that Glu will be working with Disney and look forward to pairing nostalgic and fresh Disney and Pixar content with Glu’s creative approach to game development.”
Currently in early stages of development, the new title is the first to be led by Glu Senior Vice President and Creative Leader Mike Olsen. Having spent over twenty years at Electronic Arts, most recently leading Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes, Mike joined Glu in early 2017 with the goal of building top grossing mobile games for the company.
“Successful products begin with talented, creative and capable teams,” said Olsen. “I’ve spent my first year at Glu building a very strong development team to create products we believe in from the ground up. The team and I are thrilled to be working alongside Disney to deliver a truly original mobile game we know players will love.”
The upcoming free-to-play mobile title will be available worldwide on the App Store and Google Play.
