Dev team working on experimental game

Jagex launches new studio

RuneScape developer Jagex has opened a new studio outside of Cambridge, the company’s CEO has told Develop.

Whilst information about the new studio is currently being kept largely under wraps, Mark Gerhard said developers there were currently working on “a very experimental game”.

He added that Jagex would be revealing more news on its new branch in the next few weeks.

“We have the resources to add another studio, and we very much want to make more games than what we’ve committed too so far,” Gerhard told Develop.

“But the quality mark is how many great games can we make a year, rather than how many we can make a year.

He added: “We actually do already have a small studio outside of Cambridge, and that’s working on a very experimental game.”
