Mongoose Publishing is no longer part of the Rebellion Group as of the end of May, the company announced.  Mongoose described the split as amicable and the company will continue to produce games based on Rebellion properties such as Judge Dredd and Strontium Dog.  Rebellion acquired Mongoose in 2008 (see “Mongoose Joins Rebellion”).


Mongoose’s move has led Cubicle 7 Entertainment to seek a new sales and distribution arrangement with Publishers Services, Inc. (PSI).  Ross Jepson, Director of Hobby Sales at PSI, told ICv2, “I’m quite excited about the deal as Cubicle 7 has quite a long list of good titles.”


Mongoose had been serving as the sales and distribution arm of Cubicle 7 in the US before the split.  The new arrangement with PSI is effective immediately.  PSI will provide warehousing facilities and sales services for Cubicle in the U.S., representing the company’s games both to the hobby game and book channels.


Cubicle 7 Entertainment has left the offices it shared with Mongoose Publishing, and now resides at the main headquarters of the Rebellion Group in Oxford, England.  Both companies describe the split as amicable, and continue to maintain relationships between them.
