Rebellion has bought the 'Woolfe: The Red Hood Diaries' IP


I need Sniper Elite: Happily Never After

A while ago, we reported that developer GRIN was closing down. Unfortunately, this meant all of the physical Kickstarter rewards for its game Woolfe: The Red Hood Diaries would not be given to backers, and there would be no more of the Woolfe IP.

Fortunately, Sniper Elite developer Rebellion has stepped in.

In an update to the game's Kickstarter page, it’s been announced Rebellion has bought the Woolfe IP, will ship the physical rewards previously promised, and it is planning a future for the series. What sort of future that is, Rebellion doesn’t know yet, but it wouldn’t make much sense to buy the IP of an indie game that had a mixed reception and do nothing with it.

As part of today's announcement, Rebellion has made it clear that it intends to honour Kickstarter pledges by delivering all outstanding physical rewards to backers as soon as possible…

As for the game's second episode and the future of the series, Rebellion has not yet made any decision on how it will use the Woolfe property in any further creative work.

So, fairy tale-themed Sniper Elite featuring Red Riding Hood and her spotter Sleeping Beauty, anyone?
