Mobile game developer and publisher Glu Games has announced its partnership with Skydance Productions to create a mobile game based on the upcoming theatrical release of Terminator Genisys. The film isn’t set for release until July 1, 2015, so details are still slim on this upcoming free-to-play experience.

The game will take players to the world of the Terminator franchise, introducing them to popular characters, and is being developed for “all major mobile platforms.” It will be released in summer 2015.

“Terminator is one of the most iconic action brands in entertainment and we are pleased to be the first to bring the franchise to mobile as a free-to-play game,” said Niccolo de Masi, CEO of Glu. “We look forward to offering our high-energy, action packed gameplay to the millions of Terminator fans worldwide.”

“There aren’t many mobile or free-to-play games that offer compelling action or true excitement, but Glu’s titles have proven that it’s possible to deliver both,” added Skydance CEO, David Ellison. “We’re excited to be working with them to design a game that will let gamers experience head-to-head combat in the Terminator universe.”

Terminator won’t be Glu’s first mobile game based on a film, as the company released the official RoboCop movie game in January 2014. Its other popular franchises include Dear Hunter and Frontline Commando, among others.
