Rebellion's Chris Kingsley receives OBE

Developer CTO joins brother Jason on the Honours List

Rebellion CTO and co-founder Chris Kingsley has been made an OBE in the Queen's New Year's Honours list.

Rebellion is best known for Aliens vs Predator, Sniper Elite and last year released the new IP Strange Brigade. It was formed in 1992 and has 300 employees split across three offices in the UK.

Rebellion also owns 2000 AD, which operates comic books including Judge Dredd. The company also works in books, TV and film.

Chris Kingsley is also chairman of TIGA's Education Committee and Chair of the Games Council at ScreenSkills. He joins his brother Jason, the other co-founder and CEO of Rebellion, who already has an OBE.

"I am greatly honoured and very grateful to have been made an OBE in the Queen's New Year's Honours List," said Chris Kingsley. "This honour represents a recognition of the achievements of Rebellion and perhaps more importantly, the entire UK video games development industry.

"I look forward to driving forward Rebellion, TIGA and the wider UK video games industry in the months and years to come."
