Nearly 20 years in, and RuneScape is still growing. Jagex let loose with a flood of numbers this week, detailing how well 2019 went for the company and its flagship game, which has more paying players than most games have players, period.

Jagex counted a peak of 1.1 million subscribers to RuneScape and Old School RuneScape in 2019, a record high. Daily active users for OSRS also reached its highest ever peak, with the game topping over 8 million downloads on mobile following its launch in late 2018. Jagex also brought on 100 new employees at its Cambridge HQ, including new executive producers of both RuneScape and Old School RuneScape.

For the coming year, Jagex is looking forward to the Archaeology update for RuneScape and Morytania content for OSRS, as well as gearing up for RuneScape's 20th anniversary next January. That will include "a series of initiatives that will celebrate the community of players that make both RuneScape and Old School RuneScape so special."
