Rebellion Happy with AvP Reception; Considering Sequel

Rebellion, developer of the original Aliens Vs. Predator and the series revival released last Tuesday, isn’t letting mixed reviews get them down.

After debuting at #1 on the sales charts in their native United Kingdom, Rebellion is happy with the game’s reception. In an interview with Developer-Online, CEO Jason Kingsly expressed his satisfaction.

“We’re delighted to see the game shoot to the top of the UK charts,” said Kingsly. “We wanted Aliens Versus Predator to be a critical success as well as a commercial success, which we think we have achieved.”

When asked about the mixed reviews the game has received Kingsly was blunt.

“The reviews have been mostly good,” said Kingsly. “We’ve had three totally sh*t reviews by some Americans, which is a bit odd. Some of them were inexcusably bad.”

The CEO also spoke briefly about what the studio plans to do next.

“We’re also in discussions with Sega about ongoing support for AvP, and also about a sequel to the game,” said Kingsly. “I won’t say what stage those negotiations are in, but we would love to revisit the franchise.”

Aliens Vs. Predator was released on February 16, 2010 in the United States for the PC, Xbox 360 and PC. The game was developed by Rebellion and published by SEGA.
