RuneScape Had 1.1 Million Subscribers In 2019

Runescape 3 Coins RuneScape has managed to continue setting milestones as the game reached a record high of over 1 million paid subscribers in 2019. Though many classic MMORPGs have died off Jagex's Runescape which released in 2001 continues to make a strong showing.

Jagex counted a peak of 1.1 million subscribers to RuneScape and Old School RuneScape in 2019 a record high. Daily active users for OSRS also reached its highest ever peak with the game topping over 8 million downloads on mobile following its launch in late 2018. Jagex also brought on 100 new employees at its Cambridge HQ including new executive producers of both RuneScape and Old School RuneScape.

RuneScape has evolved a lot over the years. The original RuneScape Classic servers went offline in 2018. While many said that this heralded the end of RuneScape as a whole reports of the game's demise were greatly exaggerated. The newer versions of RuneScape continued to thrive over the years as Jagex continued to add new content to the game picking up both free and paid members. In 2019 Old School RuneScape was named Best Mobile Game at the Develop Stars Awards and won a BAFTA for EE Mobile Game of the Year.

Jagex is looking forward to the Archaeology update for RuneScape and Morytania content for OSRS as well as gearing up for RuneScape’s 20th anniversary next January. That will include “a series of initiatives that will celebrate the community of players RS GPthat make both RuneScape and Old School RuneScape so special.”

It's unclear how much longer RuneScape will keep going but its popularity shows no sign of ending anytime soon. Mansell seems correct when he says that 2020 is shaping up to be the biggest year for both the game and Jagex. As other MMORPGs that were once popular continue to meet their demise RuneScape has shown an ability to grow and adapt even when all the cards are stacked against it. RuneScape's popularity may seem a mystery to some but the popularity of WoW Classic and RuneScape says something about older RPGs: they have a substance that more modern games lack.
