Glu Mobile Launches RoboCop Game in Partnership with Worldwide Theatrical Release
Glu Mobile today announced the availability of RoboCop: The Official Game, an app for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. In partnership with MGM Interactive Inc. (MGM), a subsidiary of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc., Glu has developed the official free-to-play mobile game in conjunction with the new “RoboCop” feature film scheduled for U.S. theatrical release from Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures and Columbia Pictures on February 12, 2014.
This fast-paced third person shooter places players in the RoboCop training simulator as they prepare for the dangerous streets of Detroit.
