Runescape maker targets China launches for 2019 after record pr

  • Runescape, a multi-user game set within a fantasy world, is recognized as one from the RuneScape Gold pioneers in the online fantasy genre and was initially launched in 2001.

    New Runescape titles are scheduled for launch in 2019 after Fukong's deal earned rights to promote Jagex's intellectual property.

    But ever since the deal, Fukong has endured falling revenues and profits. Shanghai-listed Fukong's newest financial three-month results saw revenues slump 50pc to CNY 101 (£11m).The Chinese company's OSRS Gold share price has fallen 87pc ever since the start of 12 months amid a government crackdown on gaming addiction.
