British-based veteran developer Rebellion (Rogue Trooper) has announced that it has purchased the staff and physical assets of similarly veteran UK developer (and original Tomb Raider creator) Core Design from fellow British publisher SCi. The new deal will see Rebellion acquire the Derby Studios and staff of Core Design, who will continue to work with SCi-owned Eidos Interactive on a new project and will be renamed. The Core Design name and IPs will be retained by Eidos. The move follows Rebellion’s most recent acquisition of internal development studio Strangelite from Empire Interactive, as Rebellion, which also owns UK magazine 2000AD, the creator of original IP such as Judge Dredd, continues to expand its remit. “Core is one of the UK industry's major success stories and we're delighted to have completed the deal with Eidos,” commented Jason Kingsley, CEO and Creative Director of Rebellion. “With next-gen development upon us now, and publisher requirements changing, this studio's deep and experienced talent allows us to continue to compete at a global level.” Jason continued: “We are in a position where our products such as Sniper Elite and Rogue Trooper are receiving critical acclaim and our reputation for innovative, quality titles is in the ascendant. This acquisition is a major component in maintaining this progress, and together with our business plan for 2006, it's our goal to develop Rebellion further.”
