Rebellion Planning New Sequels to Vivendi Franchises: Lords of the Realm, Ground Control, More

Alien vs. Predator developer Rebellion purchased a number of Vivendi-owned intellectual properties following the Activision Blizzard merger, and is currently putting together plans to develop "new titles in each series."

The properties include the medieval strategy franchises Lords of the Realm and Lords of Magic, and the RTS series Ground Control and Empire Earth. Rebellion also grabbed the strategy franchise Evil Genius from defunct studio Elixir Studios.

Rebellion last week released Ground Control and Evil Genius for digital download on GoG.com, and has plans to release more of the classics there in the future. More interestingly, the developer is also looking to create new games based on the old properties.

"Yes, we have complete ownership of the IP from the past and going forwards, so yes we're putting our plans together for new titles in each series," said Rebellion CEO Jason Kingsley to BigDownload.
