2016 marks the 15th anniversary of RuneScape and to celebrate, JAGEX are holding a year-long celebration! JAGEX (Britainâ€™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 â€œthe most played massively multiplayer online games in videogame historyâ€.
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.
