Strange Brigade and Sniper Elite developer Rebellion are holders of the 2000AD licence, which includes Judge Dredd, Rogue Trooper, Strontium Dog and other cool properties - and we may be seeing new 2000AD games very soon.
Up until now they have only created two videogames based on the licence - Judge Dredd: Dredd Vs Death in 2003 and Rogue Trooper, which was remastered in Redux form last year. That may be changing, as Rebellion CEO Jason Kingsley says "there may be announcements coming in the next few months."
Rebellion previously announced they were opening up the licence to other developers in February 2017. VG247 spoke to Rebellion CEO Jason Kingsley about the status of these games.
"We’ve talked to and we have agreements with a number of different people. We haven’t announced anything yet because it’s too early for some of them, but there may be announcements coming in the next few months. That’s very exciting, we have some really cool stuff being worked on."
We previously spoke to Rob Dale at Rebellion about the new 2000AD games, particularly the possibility of a new Judge Dredd game. He told us, "we’ve certainly had people pitch to us and who knows what you might see? It would have to be the right game to do Judge Dredd of course. It’s a very well-loved IP that we wouldn’t want to get the wrong game out for."
Rebellion's latest game Strange Brigade is out on August 28.
