iFreyr Games is a Chinese studio... They are based in shanghai, their developers are chinese too, they have a weibo account. look it up! they probably crafted a chinese alternative for star warfare because of the growing app market in china which probably seems like attractive business. however, note that freyr is responsible for other games too, and they are busy producing new ones. thus, they stopped updating and perfecting the chinese variant because it is not that successful as the original english one. besides, the people in china don't have much time for games (just saying, i'm not from the place).
