2016 marks the 15th anniversary of RuneScape and to celebrate, JAGEX are holding a year-long celebration! JAGEX (Britain’s largest independent video game creator) was founded by two brothers and officially launched in 2001 whilst working on RuneScape. A year later there were already 1 million free accounts registered. That number has since risen to over 245 million accounts and is still growing, earning them the recognition as “the most played massively multiplayer online games in videogame history”.
Festivities will start in February, with the release of a documentary that shows the journey of JAGEX, RuneScape and the thousands of staff that have all helped get them to where they are today.
