Oxford headquartered games developer Rebellion has received an eight-figure funding package from HSBC to scale up and open bigger headquarters.

The company is purchasing  a new HQ in Oxford – the former Osney Mead office of Newsquest Oxfordshire – more than twice the size of its current main office. The funding will also support the expansion of the game developer’s Didcot studios.

The new five-acre site will more than double the size of its current space, taking it to 217,800 sq ft.

Rebellion CEO Jason Kingsley, said: “HSBC UK has supported the business as we prioritise our wider growth strategy. The new site in Oxford is a key element of this and will allow us to continue to hire additional staff, as well as providing increased space for our offices and creative studios.

“The funding has also allowed us to remain agile and invest in new technology, as we work within an industry that is constantly evolving. Creativity is at the heart of what we do and the support from HSBC UK has given us the freedom to continue to champion this.”
