Independent UK developer and publisher Rebellion has today announced the departures of Philip Oliver and Andrew Oliver, who leave the company on February 15th, 2019 to start a new video games consultancy business.
After decades of creating renowned video games, industry veterans Philip and Andrew Oliver co-founded development studio Radiant Worlds in 2013 with Richard Smithies. In January 2018, Rebellion acquired Radiant Worlds, and Philip and Andrew continued on at the newly renamed Rebellion Warwick to help oversee the transition period.
Over that time, the studio relocated from rented premises to a purchased, state-of-the-art office in Warwick Technology Park, double the size of its previous location. Rebellion Warwick also contributed to the development and publishing of titles such as Arca's Path VR and Strange Brigade, and continues to work on upcoming titles including Evil Genius 2.
"Philip and Andrew's remit was to help with what would be a challenging time of transition for their studio," said Rebellion CEO and Co-founder Jason Kingsley OBE. "We are grateful for the assistance they provided and the work they did at Rebellion Warwick. With their huge experience, we're excited to see their consultancy business grow."
"We're delighted with what the Rebellion Warwick team has achieved over the last year, and we are confident they'll continue to flourish," said Philip Oliver, "But we're both looking forward to this next chapter and we're excited to get started."
Philip and Andrew Oliver will announce more about their upcoming new business in the coming weeks.
