Rebellion is a British computer games company, based in Oxford, established by brothers Jason and Chris Kingsley in 1992. Their first known title was Alien Vs. Predator for the Atari Jaguar, which was considered one of the few good games for that console.

In June 2000 they bought the comic 2000 AD from Fleetway, and have since developed several characters from the comic for the games market. The first commercial release, Judge Dredd: Dredd Vs. Death was mildly successful. A second game was released in 2006 based on Rogue Trooper and has been very well received.

Along with developing the title's characters for video games, Rebellion continues to publish 2000 AD as well as its sister title the Judge Dredd Megazine. In 2004, Rebellion entered a deal with DC Comics to reprint several 2000 AD stories in trade paperback form, including Judge Dredd, Strontium Dog, Nikolai Dante, and Sinister Dexter. When DC left the venture, citing poor sales, Rebellion elected to continue the line on its own. Rebellion also added the Judge Dredd: The Complete Case Files series, which has begun reprinting almost every Dredd appearance in chronological order.

In 2005, they had announced taking development of the sequel to Evil Genius since the original developer, Elixir Studios had closed its doors.

In 2006 Rebellion purchased Tomb Raider developers Core Design from Eidos, as well as Strangelite from Empire Interactive, making the company the largest independent European development studio.
