“Old School RuneScape’s successful mobile launch was made possible by our incredible team, who’ve been able to make this classic game play smoothly in a mobile form factor and which allows players to enjoy the convenience of completely interoperable PC to mobile cross-play.
Mansell is aware of that as well and he said, “We find that the more we listen to, engage with, and empower the community the more if fosters a true connection; with each other and with the games. The big increases we’re seeing in both membership and active users show that we’re not only able to bring new players into RuneScape but we’re able to offer the kind of rich, evergreen content that keeps them engaged for the long term.”
