UK-based Rebellion Developments is a pretty unique proposition within the games industry; its connection with the cult British comic 2000AD (which it owns) means that it can call upon famous properties such as Rogue Trooper and Judge Dredd, but it also creates its own range of IP, such as the best-selling Sniper Elite series and the upcoming Strange Brigade.
The company has supported Nintendo systems in the past, with Rogue Trooper hitting the Wii and Sniper Elite V2 being released on the Wii U. Now, CEO Jason Kingsley has confirmed to VG247 that it will be bringing games to the Switch:
Switch is a really important format to us. We are working on Switch titles. It’s a different power of machine, so you have to be a bit careful – it’s not as powerful as PS4 or the Xbox. We can’t just port our games onto Switch, you’ve gotta think of new and interesting ideas.
One of the things we’ve been through is console change. We were on the first PlayStation, PS2, PS3, PS4. There’s always a new challenge. We make games very cost effectively. Our games sell half as well as the biggest games out there and that’s pretty damn good, but our games cost a tenth of what ours cost to make.
What games do you think we'll see on Switch? We've already had the Rogue Trooper reboot (which was developed externally), so perhaps another 2000AD game is in the offing? Or maybe Rebellion will aim (no pun intended) to adapt its Sniper Elite franchise for the hybrid console? Let us know what you'd like to see by posting a comment.
