REBELLION EXPANDS TO FOUR STUDIOS WITH ACQUISITION OF TICKTOCK GAMES
Oxford, UK – 3 January 2019 – Independent UK developer and publisher Rebellion today announced the acquisition of Yorkshire-based studio TickTock Games for an undisclosed sum.   TickTock Games, founded by industry veterans Arden Aspinall, Jonathan Wright and Paul Kelly, have worked with many major partners across their 12-year history, including Nintendo, Sony, Microsoft, Nvidia and BBC Worldwide. TickTock have recently lent their creative and industry expertise to Rebellion projects, working on Rogue Trooper Redux and the Nintendo Switch version of Battlezone Gold Edition.    TickTock Games will become Rebellion North, the fourth games studio falling under Rebellion’s umbrella, joining Rebellion Liverpool and Rebellion Warwick as sister studios to the company’s headquarters in Oxford. Rebellion North has already begun work on upcoming Rebellion games, as the company readies itself for another big year, with multiple unannounced titles set to launch in 2019.   “Bringing more great people to the company is a great way to start 2019,” said Rebellion CEO and Co-Founder Jason Kingsley OBE. “The company continues to grow and it’s of utmost important we bring in the right people. We’ve worked with the team at TickTock Games for a while now, and we know they’ll continue to prosper as Rebellion North.”   The news comes after another landmark year for Rebellion, which not only saw the release of new IP Strange Brigade, but saw the company acquire a $100m film studio facility and become the custodian of the world’s largest catalogue of English language comic book IP, thanks to the acquisition of the comics and fiction assets formerly belonging to IPC.   The year closed out with more good news, as Rebellion Co-Founder and CTO Chris Kingsley was awarded an OBE for services to the Economy in the New Years Honours List in recognition of his services to independent UK games development and the UK games industry as a whole, having led Rebellion with his brother for more than 25 years.
