Video game developer Rebellion set to expand with funding from HSBC UK

An Oxfordshire video game developer is set to expand with eight-figure funding.

Rebellion, known for its Sniper Elite and Zombie Army series of games, has bought Osney Mead’s former office from Newsquest Oxfordshire – publishers of the Oxford Mail – to support its expansion plans.

The new five-acre site will more than double the size of its current space, bringing it to 217,800 square feet.

The funding will also support the development of Rebellion’s studios in Didcot as it increases investment in its virtual production capabilities.

It was also used to support the development of a new video game in the world’s best-selling Sniper series. The latest game, Sniper Elite 5, will be released early this year.

Jason Kingsley, owner and CEO of Rebellion, said: “HSBC UK has supported the business as we prioritize our broader growth strategy. The new Oxford site is a key part of this and will allow us to continue to hire additional staff, while providing more space for our offices and creative studios.

“The funding has also allowed us to stay nimble and invest in new technologies, as we work in an ever-changing industry. Creativity is at the heart of what we do and the support of HSBC UK has given us the freedom to continue to champion this.
