    Jagex has announced RuneScape and Old School RuneScape are coming to mobile and tablet devices. Old School RuneScape will be released this winter, while RuneScape will release at a later date. 

    "As a MMO player, you ideally want to play at any time of the day or night no matter where you are," said Neil McClarty, senior product director at Jagex. "We know that our players’ time is precious, and that’s why want to give all RuneScape players, both present and past, the opportunity to play RuneScape on the go.

    "The fact that they’ll be able to play on their PC, leave the PC, and pick up their mobile and continue playing where you left your character will be a big deal for our players – there really will be no need for any XP waste."

    Phil Mansell, chief operating officer at Jagex added, "This is a real step change for MMORPGs and a signal of Jagex’s intent to continue to push the boundaries of live games. The RuneScape titles will become the first mainstream and established Western MMORPGs on mobile in full and the first to deliver interoperable play between PC and mobile platforms.

    "We believe in taking our games to wherever our players want them; recent player surveys showed an overwhelming 90% of active players and 64% of former players telling us of their very high intent-to-play on mobile. Our innovative approach to mobile is also evidence of our ambitions in the mobile sector, and a further indication of our investment in extending the RuneScape franchise to additional devices and territories."
