Runescape pass 200 million accounts
In 2001 Jagex released Runescape a browser based mmo and now more than 10 years later Runescape has just passed 200 million registered player accounts.
To celebrate the fact that Runescape has 200 million accounts Jagex released an infograph about what 200 million accounts mean. If Runescape were a country it would be a 5th largest country in the world. Also the infograph has revealed that on average a player dies every 27 seconds in the game.
On surpassing the 200 million account milestone, Jagex CEO Mark Gerhard said “Although RuneScape has achieved so much over the past decade, smashing 200 million accounts is a huge accomplishment for the dedicated development team and is thanks to our awesome community. When the game was first released, nobody could ever have expected it would reach such high levels of popularity largely by community word of mouth. It has been an incredible journey to get to where we are today, and by continuing our tradition of constantly innovating, evolving and lovingly crafting RuneScape we are certain to continue to break records by creating an online adventure like no other. We’ve witnessed a really strong resurgence in the game’s popularity over the past two years and are seeing strong player growth year on year.”
Jagex has released two videos in relation to the 200 million accounts milestone.
