Description[]

Release information[]

Titled 《星球大戰:銀河衝突》 in traditional Chinese on Google Play with the English translation Star Wars: Galactic Conflict, the video game is listed as a MMORPG that could be played on mobile Android devices.[2] Although the game was never released,[1] the Google Play webpage was created on April 26, 2020, with the game’s download statistic listed as twenty times.[4]

The game description on Google Play is written in English with translation errors throughout the text, and it specifies that the game is rated for players aged twelve and above in the Republic of China, which rules Taiwan. The promotional material on Google Play uses mostly traditional Chinese, which is used in Taiwan and Hong Kong, but one image features both traditional Chinese and simplified Chinese, which is used in mainland China under the People’s Republic of China.[2]

Plot[]

The game is set in the early days of the Clone Wars,[2] which began in 22 BBY.[3]

Development[]

Yoozoo and Gamesword[]

In 2019, The Walt Disney Company signed a license agreement for Star Wars: Galactic Conflict, referred to as 《星球大战:银河冲突》 in simplified Chinese, with Yoozoo Games,[1] a video game developer headquartered in Shanghai, People’s Republic of China,[5] and led by the gaming tycoon Lin Qi from 2009, when he founded Yoozoo, until his murder in December, 2020.[6]

The game’s Google Play webpage was updated on April 27, 2020 and identifies Gamesword as the trader.[2] Gamesword is a Hong Kong company founded by the Taiwanese company Gravity in 2019,[7] and Taiwan media reported on April 24, 2020 that Gamesword had signed a licensing agreement with the ULT company on the previous day.[8]

The Google Play webpage also lists the game developer as “GTarcade-old.”[2] GTarcade is a gaming platform owned by Yoozoo Games.[5] On April 26, 2020, the Youzu Games company in the United Kingdom replaced its director, who had significant shares in the company, and declared Youzu’s company in Hong Kong to be the new party with significant shares.[9] Gamesword had previously granted ULT rights to manage the 2019 MMORPG Game of Thrones: Winter Is Coming in Taiwan and the People’s Republic of China’s Special Administrative Regions of Hong Kong and Macau,[10] and the game was similarly developed by Yoozoo Games, which also trades as “Youzu Games.”[11] The listed address of Youzu Games’ Hong Kong division on one of its games is identical to Gamesword’s Hong Kong address, as listed on the Star Wars game’s Google Play page.[12]

Legal dispute[]

According to Chinese media in October, 2022, Yoozoo had sued Disney’s China branch over the development of Galactic Conflict. In a Shanghai court, Yoozoo accused Disney of “needlessly delays” after signing their license agreement for the Star Wars game in 2019, with the developer claiming that they completed the game on schedule in spite of the difficulties. However, Yoozoo alleged that Disney tried to terminate their contract on the basis that the game developer failed to deliver as promised and unilaterally withdrew the Star Wars game license. The Shanghai court requested that both parties attempt to resolve the matter through “friendly negotiation” and, if unsuccessful, for Yoozoo to request the case to be arbitrated by the China International Economic and Trade Arbitration Commission. The court then dismissed Yoozoo’s lawsuit. The game had received an official version number in China on August 6, 2020, but was never brought online.[1]
