Over the years, CCP Games have released a small number of ultimately short-lived spin-off games of their highly successful EVE Online sci-fi game. Most notably this includes Dust 514, a FPS spin-off that was released exclusively for the PlayStation 3 in 2013, before ultimately shuttering its doors in 2016. The company have now revealed that work is underway on EVE Galaxy Conquest, pitched as a “4X strategy mobile game” being developed by their Shanghai studio. The plans are for EVE Galaxy Conquest to be soft-launched in select regions on both iOS and Android platforms in Q3 2023, before receiving a full global release more than a year later in 2025.
According to CCP Games:
In EVE Galaxy Conquest, players must work as a team to battle opponents for interstellar supremacy, leading vast armadas representing one of the four mighty empires from EVE Online: the Caldari State, Gallente Federation, Amarr Empire, or Minmatar Republic. Featuring strategic 4X gameplay, players command EVE’s iconic ships and characters as they explore space, exploit resources, expand territory, and exterminate their enemies. EVE Galaxy Conquest empowers players to set their own goals, engage in diplomacy, work together on shared objectives, and orchestrate elaborate PvP battles, all in the palm of their hands. Maintaining EVE’s trademark characteristics, every action and decision players make in EVE Galaxy Conquest has consequences.
