UK studio spurred on by Facebook Evil Genius title

Console developer Rebellion is to kick start a division focused on social network games after launching Facebook title Evil Genius.

The independent studio is best known for console first-person shooter Aliens Vs Predator, last-gen hits Sniper Elite and Rogue Trooper, and a handful of hit titles from the early days of the PSP.

"The release of Evil Genius has given us an appetite to look at other opportunities in the area," said Jason Kingsley, CEO of Rebellion.

"One thing that has become increasingly apparent over the last few years is that gamers can't be defined as just people who own consoles people who use social media like Facebook or use smart phones all play games and this is an exciting new opportunity that we want to explore."

I hope they release a sequel in the style of the original Evil Genius along with their social game.
