Core Design Limited (known as Rebellion (Derby) Ltd between 2006 and 2010) was a British video game developer based in Derby, the company is widely known for being the creator and the original developer of the Tomb Raider series.

They used the same gaming engine for Tomb Raider 1-5, but the graphics enhanced in each game, as well as new moves being added. For Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness, they moved to a next-generation engine - where it was better in graphics, and new moves. The Angel of Darkness was criticized by its difficult controls and camera angles. Afterwards, many of the three key members of the Core team left the company and went onto their own development team, Circle Studio.

Tomb Raider was given to another developer owned by Eidos Interactive: Crystal Dynamics.
