RuneScape games are going mobile with cross-platform play

RuneScape is coming to mobile and tablet devices, Jagex has announced. Both RuneScape and Old School RuneScape are making the jump and these games will feature cross-platform play with the PC version. Old School RuneScape debuts this winter, with RuneScape to follow. “Full interoperable play” will allow players to log out from PC and launch the mobile app to continue their adventure, and vice-versa.

Phil Mansell, Chief Operating Officer, Jagex said:

“This is a real step change for MMORPGs and a signal of Jagex’s intent to continue to push the boundaries of live games. The RuneScape titles will become the first mainstream and established Western MMORPGs on mobile in full and the first to deliver interoperable play between PC and mobile platforms. We believe in taking our games to wherever our players want them; recent player surveys showed an overwhelming 90% of active players and 64% of former players telling us of their very high intent-to-play on mobile. Our innovative approach to mobile is also evidence of our ambitions in the mobile sector, and a further indication of our investment in extending the RuneScape franchise to additional devices and territories.”

Considering that RuneScape has been around for several years, it shouldn't be much trouble to port this game to mobile devices. Having a full-fledged MMO on mobile still is unusual, but this and Mabinogi Mobile should take the genre in the right direction.
