Frontwire, the developer behind the upcoming Star Wars Battlefront III remake, Galaxy in Turmoil, has revealed that Valve has agreed to distribute the game on Steam. “It is with great pleasure that as of today I am able to officially announce that Frontwire Studios has officially signed a distribution deal with Steam/Valve for the game Galaxy in Turmoil,” Frontwire president Tony Fergie Romanelli said in a statement. “After ongoing discussion between Valve representatives and myself, Valve/Steam has agreed to ship Galaxy in Turmoil to its millions of users for FREE.”
Since Galaxy in Turmoil will use the Star Wars IP, and doesn’t have permission to use it, you might be Thinking if Disney will come down like a tonne of bricks and shut it down, even though Frontwire is going to give it away free. Romanelli thinks a little bit about it, but he isn’t too worried, it sounds like.”I’ll be honest–I’ve had mild concerns myself from time to time,” Romanelli said. “However, Valve clearly lacks that same concern. By agreeing to publish Galaxy in Turmoil, Valve is assisting us in growing and ensuring the longevity of the Galaxy in Turmoil project and community as a whole.”
Romanelli showed a picture of Galaxy in Turmoil’s Steam page, but it does not appear to be live on the platform just yet. Lets hope Disney doesn’t stand in his way.
