After it recently purchased Strangelite, Rebellion announced that it has reached an agreement with SCi to purchase the staff and physical assets of Core Design, who will continue to work with Eidos on a new project and will be re-named.

The acquisition forms an important part of Rebellion’s strategy to maintain its position as one of Europe’s leading independent studios.

Jason Kingsley, CEO and Creative Director of Rebellion said, ” Core is one of the UK industry’s major success stories and we’re delighted to have completed the deal with Eidos. 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 continues, “We are in a position where our products such as Sniper EliteTM and Rogue TrooperTM 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.”

The Core Design name and IPs will be retained by Eidos.
