  • Rebellion Acquires Radiant Worlds

    Rebellion, the independent UK based developer and publisher, have acquired Radiant Worlds, a UK development studio that was founded in 2013. They were acquired for an undisclosed sum.

    Radiant Worlds will become Rebellion Warwick. Its 70 employees will join Rebellion Liverpool as a sister studio to Rebellion's main studio in Oxford. Rebellion Warwick is set to immediately hop onto existing projects in the Rebellion lineup, including Strange Brigade. They will also contribute to other Rebellion IPs such as Sniper Elite, Evil Genius, Battlezone, and more.
    “To bring such great people to the company, just after our 25th birthday, is quite remarkable,” said Rebellion CEO and co-founder Jason Kingsley OBE. “It’s been a great year for us and we have a lot of plans to help make 2018, 2019 and beyond bigger and even greater years for Rebellion.”

    Philip Oliver, one of the founders of Radiant Worlds, is thrilled by the deal: “We’ve known the Kingsleys for many years and have always had enormous respect for them and the company they’ve built. We know that our core values of creativity, passion, and ambition are mirrored by Rebellion, and we’re excited to be part of their amazing team.”

    Richard Smithies, Radiant Worlds’ outgoing Chairman and Chief Operating Officer, is also delighted at the next chapter for the developer: “We’ve managed to build one of the financially strongest and most talented development studios in the UK. I wish everyone now working with Rebellion every success for the future.”
