Dominic McDowall, who led the successful management buy-out, said;
I’m excited to be taking Cubicle 7 into its next phase of development,”
“Rebellion’s investment and mentoring has given us a great start, and now we’re ready to go it alone. I’d like to thank Chris and Jason Kingsley and everyone else at Rebellion for their invaluable support, advice and inspiration.
Jason Kingsley, who leads Rebellion as CEO while also acting as Creative Director, said;
Getting involved with start-ups and small companies, nurturing them and helping them grow is enormously rewarding. It’s great to see Dominic and Cubicle 7 taking what they’ve learned as part of Rebellion and following their own path. I look forward to their future successes!
It is expected that there will be no impact on customers. Pre-orders, release schedule, licenses and Kickstarters are unaffected. Indeed, it may C7’s Kickstarter success that has helped enable to buy-out.
Cubicle 7’s titles include Doctor Who, The One Ring, Lone Wolf, Cthulhu Britannica, the laundry, World War Cthulhu, Rocket Age and Victoriana.
The Kingsley brothers first appear listed as Cubicle 7 directors in 2009, that’s after Angus Abranson and Dominic McDowall founded the company in 2007. Previously, Rebellion had also worked with Mongoose but the two parted ways in 2010.
