Strangelite produced PC conversions of Crazy Taxi and Virtua Tennis and, more recently, Starship Troopers.
Rebellion, meanwhile, has grown hugely in the space of less than a month – having recently bought the assets of the famous Core Design from SCI/Eidos (MCV 12/05).
Some analysts have even been suggesting that Rebellion may look to make a follow-up bid for Empire in its entirety.
But Rebellion chief executive Jason Kingsley remained cagey when questioned by MCV. “There is a masterplan,” he said. “Of course we need to grow, but we’re not interested in publishing at the moment.
“You can never say never, though. Everything’s open for discussion. It might be a barmy idea but we’ve gone ahead with barmy ideas before.”
