Core joins the Rebellion
The deal will see the Rebellion group acquire the Derby studios and staff of Core Design, who will continue to work with Eidos on a new project and will be re-named [Rebellion Derby]. The Core Design name and valuable IPs will be retained by Eidos. The acquisition forms an important part of Rebellionâs strategy to become one of Europeâs leading independent studios.
Jason Kingsley, CEO and Creative Director of Rebellion said, âCoreâs development studio is one of the UK industryâs major success storyâs and weâre delighted to have completed the deal with Eidos. With Next-Gen with us now, and the publisher requirements that brings, the studioâs talent and innovation allows us to continue to compete at a global level.â
Jason continues, âWeâre in a position where our products such as Sniper EliteTM and Rogue TrooperTM are receiving critical acclaim and our reputation for innovative, quality products is in the ascendant. This acquisition is a major component in maintaining this progression, and together with our business plan for 2006, itâs our goal to develop the Rebellion Group into one of Europeâs most successful independent studios.â
