In a recent interview with the UK’s Edge magazine, the CEO of game developer Rebellion (who created Rogue Warrior and 2010’s Alien Vs. Predator, both of which received less than glowing reviews,) Jason Kingsley admitted that the company has put out some less than stellar games in the past and that the company is actively working to change their reputation.
The British studio, which is currently co-developing Konami’s necrotic third person shooter NeverDead, says that previously they took on projects that would make them money rather than ones that would result in the creation of good games, a policy that, according to Kingsley, they no longer abide by.
It’s always nice to see a developer with some perspective, as opposed to most developers who can’t seem to handle any criticisms levied against their work, and while Rebellion’s body of work, which mostly consists of licensed handheld shovelware and a few, seemingly rushed and flawed projects like the before mentioned Alien Vs. Predator, certainly doesn’t inspire much confidence, it’ll at least be interesting to see what projects come out of Rebellion in the future.
