Why #BlackOutStarWarsEclipse Is Trending on Twitter

A fan campaign has started to boycott Quantic Dream’s new Star Wars game, Star Wars Eclipse. On Twitter, the hashtag #BlackOutStarWarsEclipse is trending, and users are protesting Quantic Dream’s involvement with the Star Wars franchise, given the studio’s past.

In 2018, reports from three separate French news outlets made accusations that Quantic Dream fostered a workplace culture for racism, sexism, and homophobia. Studio head David Cage and executive producer Guillaume de Fondaumière were at the center of these allegations.

Cage allegedly had a certain attitude towards female employees, told dirty jokes, and had inappropriate remarks about female actors in his games, as well as homophobic and racist remarks. However, Cage has since said that the allegations are false. David Cage and Guillaume de Fondaumiere have since won a libel case against French publication Le Monde; but another media outlet reporting on workplace issues, Mediapart, was cleared of all charges.

Even so, users have been using the hashtag to voice their concerns with Lucasfilm partnering up with Quantic Dream. Due to the previous allegations, some users are opting not to cover the game as long as Cage is involved.

Some users have expressed that since queer, BIPOC, and marginalized characters have been prominent in the franchise, having a studio such as Quantic Dream working on a game set in the universe isn’t appropriate.

Star Wars Eclipse was announced last week at The Game Awards 2021. The game is currently in early development. The studio was rumored to be creating a Star Wars game back in September, but now it’s been confirmed.
