UK independent studio Jagex has scored a global publishing deal with social MMO New York children’s media firm Herotainment.
The Runescape studio will use its online games expertise to publish Herotopia, an “award-winning social online game for children”.
The landmark agreement makes Herotopia the second third-party game released by Jagex’s new publishing division. In 2010 the firm released Ultizen’s War of Legend MMO.
Herotopia will “relaunch” as an MMO this summer with Jagex’s online expertise behind it.
