Jason Statham, Glu’s first male celebrity partner

Glu Mobile recently announced that it will develop a new mobile game that will star none other than Jason Statham. The game will be a first-person shooter, it will be titled Sniper X: Kill Confirmed, will include Statham’s name, likeness, and voice, and will be Glu Mobile’s first action-centric celebrity game. And speaking about firsts, it’s worth pointing out that Statham is Glu’s first male celebrity partner.

“Jason Statham’s action persona and strong social following make him an ideal partner for Sniper X: Kill Confirmed. We look forward to launching this new title to a global audience of mobile action gaming fans, including Jason’s social audience of more than 54 million followers,” said Niccolo de Masi, Glu Chairman and CEO. “I’m pleased to welcome Jason to Glu’s celebrity portfolio and believe this new partnership will cement Glu’s leadership in the Hollywood gaming space.”

Nicki Minaj’s signature style and creative direction

Glu Mobile will also develop a game centered around Nicki Minaj. The game will feature Minaj’s name, likeness, and voice; it will be a free-to-play mobile game that, as Glu Mobile explained, will offer players a one-of-a-kind digital experience. Glu expects to release this game in the summer of 2016.

“I am thrilled to welcome the undisputed queen of hip-hop, Nicki Minaj, to Glu’s growing list of celebrity partners,” said Niccolo de Masi, Glu Chairman and CEO. “Nicki brings to Glu her audience of over 100 million social followers and a new music category. We look forward to combining Nicki’s distinctive style and massive global appeal with Glu’s celebrity social gaming expertise.”
