Simon Bull talks the future of Jagex and RuneScape as well as living games

The RuneScape company is looking toward tomorrow when it comes to bolstering its audiences.


If you've been a RuneScape fan since you sat down in the library at school and played it while ignoring your assignments (totally not guilty), you might want to check out Shacknews' chat with Jagex head of product marketing Simon Bull.

The company has made some pretty big changes in the last few months, and Shacknews had a chance to sit down with Bull to discuss where the company's future lies.

Jagex views its products like RuneScape and Old School RuneScape as "living games," and both are coming to mobile with full PC to mobile cross-play. That means you'll be able to enjoy the games on the go without missing a beat. The team is also hard at work on more living games, while looking to its varied audience to help improve on what the company's delivered thus far.

"The operation at Jagex isn't about cannibailzing our existing business. We've brought in people to bolster our partnership offering. We'll scale to accommodate new games as we sign them." Check out the video above for the full interview!
