Keynote: Rebellion - The Path to Independence

Thursday 11th July: 10.00 - 11.00 : Room 2

Jason Kingsley OBE and Chris Kingsley OBE are pioneers in the UK games industry. They’ve grown Rebellion into one of Europe’s leading independent gaming studios over the last 26 years, and the studio continues to create standout games like Sniper Elite 4 and Strange Brigade. But Rebellion has evolved over the years. Now the company self-publishes its games worldwide, and it’s also the home of 2000 AD, at the forefront of sci-fi and fantasy book publishing, and the owners of a newly opened $100m film studio in the heart of Oxfordshire. In this fireside chat, the Kingsley brothers will share their journey to becoming truly independent in the games industry, and how they grew from a work-for-hire studio into a company making and releasing its own creative content across a wide range of media.
