An Update for our Community


The impact of the coronavirus means we’re entering uncharted territory, not unlike when you mapped the Kharazi Jungle to earn admission into the Legends’ Guild. Unfortunately, there isn’t a quest guide for us to follow, but our teams have been hard at work ensuring that RuneScape can keep going. We’d like to use this opportunity to update you on what’s happening at Jagex.

The safety of Jagex staff is priority number one, and from today we’re recommending that JMods begin working from home for the foreseeable future. In the meantime, we are preparing to better facilitate the staff remaining in the studio.

This shift represents a big change to the way we work, and you might be wondering whether this will affect RuneScape and Old School. It’s possible that there may be fewer game updates and livestreams in the short term, but we’ll communicate any schedule changes. Looking longer term, we don’t envisage any notable changes to our plans for the year.

That’s it from us. We’d like to thank you for continued support, and we’ll leave you with this. Please listen to expert advice – be sure to regularly wash your hands for 20 seconds (just hum to yourself the first four bars of Sea Shanty 2 if you need help) and to follow the advice outlined by your government.

Keep yourself and your family safe, and we’ll keep RuneScape going (after all, the best place to self-isolate is in Gielinor).
