Rebellion Announces The Acquisition of Radiant Worlds

Independent UK developer and publisher Rebellion today announced the acquisition of Radiant Worlds, the UK development studio founded in 2013 by industry veterans Andrew Oliver, Philip Oliver and Richard Smithies, for an undisclosed sum.
 
Radiant Worlds will become Rebellion Warwick, joining Rebellion Liverpool as a sister studio to the company’s headquarters in Oxford. Rebellion Warwick will immediately transition on to current projects – including the 1930s co-op adventure Strange Brigade revealed last year – and in the future will contribute to projects based on Rebellion’s beloved IP such as Sniper Elite, Evil Genius, Battlezone and more. Founders Philip and Andrew Oliver will remain at Rebellion Warwick.
 
The acquisition completes a landmark 12 months for Rebellion who recently celebrated their 25th birthday. In 2017 the company self-published Sniper Elite 4 to major commercial and critical success, announced its next major new IP in Strange Brigade, and released a remaster of the BAFTA-nominated classic Rogue Trooper. Its stewardship of cutting edge comic 2000 AD (also celebrating its 40th birthday) saw renewed focus, opening up the 2000 AD universe to external game developers and announcing Mega-City One – an ambitious TV series set in world of Judge Dredd.
 
Now employing over 300 staff, Rebellion firmly cements its reputation as one of the UK’s most exciting multi-media companies.
