Develop-Online is reporting that up to 20 Rebellion employee's have been let go from the Oxford studio. Rebellion's Derby location is reportedly no more as well. It's been known that the Derby studio has been facing some troubles since the beginning of the year, but a source close to Develop has stated that the studio is all but closed.

Rebellion recently put out Aliens Vs Predator which has done pretty well, especially over in the UK. It's always sad to hear about these kinds of troubles and we'll have to wait to see what the official word is on all of this from Rebellion.
