Rebellion Planning On Sequels To IP Acquisitions

Rebellion has revealed “plans” for new titles in a number of old game series the company recently picked up.BigDownload spotted that GoG.com, a digital distribution site that’s all about PC classics, had updated with Rebellion-owned titles – and realised that the titles in question weren’t originally Rebellion owned. Speaking to the developer, BigDownload learned that Rebellion had indeed acquired the rights to a lot of the old Vivendi Games titles that werne’t carried over when Vivendi merged with Activision.These titles include Dungeon Keeper-esque strategy game Evil Genius, tactics-focused RTS Ground Control, history-spanning RTS Empire Earth, feudal turn-based strategy game Lords of the Realm, and its fantasy spin-off Lords of Magic.Rebellion CEO Jason Kingsley told BigDownload that the company “identified the other titles as ones that we thought were interesting and were in their back-catalogue and then approached Activision about them.”When asked about plans for updates, things got a lot more interesting. “Yes, we have complete ownership of the IP from the past and going forwards, so yes we’re putting our plans together for new titles in each series. Exactly what and when is currently up for discussion, as we’re super busy on Aliens vs Predator for Sega and Rogue Warrior for Bethesda.”Evil Genius sequel please.
