The two worked together recently on the Nintendo Switch ports of both Battlezone and Rogue Trooper Redux. TickTock will be rebranded Rebellion North. No figure has been put on the deal. 

Business expansion

This is the latest purchase made by the games and entertainment company following the acquisition of Radiant Worlds, rebranding it to Rebellion Warwick.

At the end of 2018, the company also revealed it was purchasing a new space in Oxford to help realise its film and TV ambitions in an operation worth up to $100m - though it's unclear how much Rebellion paid for facility.
