Rebellion, one of Europe’s largest independent creative studios, has launched a new board game division called Rebellion Unplugged.
The first game from the new offshoot will be Sniper Elite the Board Game, based on the studio’s bestselling tactical shooter series.
Headed up by Duncan Molloy, previously the founder and creative lead at Osprey Games, Rebellion Unplugged will release new physical games and collectables based on the company’s extensive collection of properties, which includes 2000 AD, the upcoming Evil Genius 2, and the multi-million selling Zombie Army series.
“We’re absolutely delighted to be launching Rebellion Unplugged,” said Rebellion CEO and founder Jason Kingsley OBE.
“My brother Chris and I have been making video games for more than 25 years, and our love of the medium has its roots in our childhood love of board games. We’ve got so many great games and comic book heroes and universes to draw from too, so it’s going to be a lot of fun.”
The firm’s first game, Sniper Elite the Board Game, will be coming to Kickstarter early next year.
