Highlights to date


Jagex is the leader in lasting and content-rich community-driven games, a leading British video game developer and publisher best known for RuneScape and Old School RuneScape, two of the world’s most community-centric and successful massively multiplayer online role-playing games.


We create deep, meaningful and ever-evolving immersive experiences – and we inherently understand how to connect, engage and excite people through play.


Jagex, headquartered in Cambridge, UK, has enjoyed five years of successive growth, almost doubling its staff in the last two years and generating revenues of around £100 million a year. RuneScape, now in its 21st year of operation, is a $1 billion franchise and reached its record paid membership number in 2021.


We can proudly say we have more than two decades of experience in successfully running a community-driven game which has generated over $1 billion revenue to date, with 300 million player accounts created, has recently registered its highest membership numbers ever in franchise history, and boasts five million monthly active users and eight-year average lifetime engagement.


This has provided a unique and detailed understanding of how players interact with a game over such a sustained period of time and has armed us with the knowledge to provide long-term game publishing and product management to our development partners.
