Glu to Create James Bond
Game with EON Productions and MGM Interactive
First free-to-play mobile game in the history of the Bond franchise

San Francisco, Calif. - April 8, 2014
- Glu Mobile Inc. (NASDAQ: GLUU), a leading global developer and publisher of
free-to-play games for smartphone and tablet devices, today announced that
the company will partner with EON Productions and MGM Interactive to create a
new free-to-play mobile game based on the James Bond film franchise.
Scheduled for initial release in summer 2015, the game is inspired by the
franchise's rich history, themes, characters, and narratives. Glu's Bond game
will be available to mobile audiences worldwide across all major mobile
platforms.

"Bond offers a deep catalogue of thematic inspiration for gaming. We are
honored by the opportunity to be the first to bring such a storied franchise
to free-to-play mobile gaming," said Niccolo de Masi, Glu CEO. "We look
forward to delivering a never before seen gameplay experience on mobile for
the passionate worldwide community of Bond fans."

"Glu has an established track record producing high-fidelity mobile games and
we are confident in the company's ability to deliver an experience worthy of
the Bond name," said Gary Barber, MGM Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

Beginning as a character in Ian Fleming's series of novels and short-story
collections, the James Bond film franchise has captured the attention of
audiences worldwide since the release of "Dr. No" in 1962. Together, EON
Productions and MGM have built James Bond into one of the most successful
film franchises with the twenty-fourth film in the series due in November
2015.

"We look forward to collaborating with Glu to offer fans of the Bond franchise
a completely innovative experience on mobile devices worldwide," said David
G. Wilson, EON Vice President of Global Business Strategy.

The commercial release by Glu of its mobile game based on the James Bond film
franchise will trigger the vesting of 1,000,000 shares subject to the warrant
that Glu issued to MGM Interactive in July 2013. This warrant has an exercise
price of $3.00 per share and is exercisable only for cash.
