Taylor Swift Partners With Glu to Develop New Mobile Game

Grammy-award winning pop star Taylor Swift is making her first foray into the world of mobile gaming by partnering with Glu Mobile Inc. to develop a new game, the company said on Wednesday.

Glu Mobile did not provide further details on the game or Swift's involvement, except that the game was slated for release in late-2016 and that it was a "multi-year partnership."

Glu Mobile, the company behind the popular "Kim Kardashian: Hollywood" game, has focused on signing up global stars with a large social media following to make personalized mobile games.
