Rebellion首席执行官詹森·金斯利（Jason Kingsley）表示，《Evil Genius》的发布激发了他们在该领域寻找其他发展机遇的兴趣，“最近几年的一个明显发展趋势就是，游戏玩家的定义已不再是掌机用户，人们现在可以通过Facebook等社交网站或者智能手机玩游戏，这也正是我们希望挖掘的发展机遇。”
据首席技术官克里斯·金斯利（Chris Kingsley）所称，Rebellion有意将更多传统平台上的游戏引进在线社交游戏领域，“对我们来说，《Evil Genius》是一个有趣而富有成就感的项目，它证明非传统游戏平台上也有许多有趣的游戏。”他认为依靠Rebellion使用的内部开发技术，及其富有才华的开发团队，Rebellion可以将其18年的掌机及PC游戏体验带给更多从来没有想过自己会玩游戏的新用户。（本文为游戏邦/gamerboom.com编译，转载请注明来源：游戏邦）
Aliens Vs. Predator Dev Rebellion Starts Social Games Division
Rebellion, the UK-based developer behind console and PC games including Aliens vs. Predator and Sniper Elite on Monday announced plans to create a social gaming division.
The Oxford studio’s increased focus on social gaming comes as the sector, buoyed by Facebook’s 500 million users, gains momentum in the face of high-budget “triple-A” retail titles.
The move also comes just a few months after the release of the studio’s first Facebook social game Evil Genius: WMD, which is currently in beta.
Rebellion has also released games including Alien vs. Predator and Star Wars: Battlefront: Renegade Squadron.
Studio CEO Jason Kingsley said in a statement, “The release of Evil Genius has given us an appetite to look at other opportunities in the area.”
“One thing that has become increasingly apparent over the last few years is that gamers can’t be defined as just people who own consoles — people who use social media like Facebook or use smartphones all play games and this is an exciting new opportunity that we want to explore,” he added.
Rebellion CTO Chris Kingsley said the company plans on bringing its experience on more traditional platforms to the emerging online social network gaming sector.
“Evil Genius has been a fun and rewarding project for us and has proved that there is a lot of interest out there for games that don’t run on traditional platforms,” he said.
“Thanks to the internal technology we use and the great skills of our team here, we can bring our 18 years of console and PC games experience to this sector and produce games that reach new players who would never consider themselves to be gamers,” Chris Kingsley added.（source:gamasutra）
