For those who are still guessing or hoping... let's me give you something more to think about:

The shadowish island on the RS3 map is east of NORTH of High Wildy, above the gate...

The OSRS Fossil Island is east of mid Wildy...

OK. Now you may comment or keep guessing... or hoping... ;)

Osrs and rs3 hold no lore or geographical association to each other. So comparisons between the two games weigh nothing.
Roawr.

So a RS3 island not named Fossil Island and is not on the same location of the Fossil Island in the OSRS version of Gielinor "is" Fossil Island?????

Why don't you tell me a tropical island near the equator = the North Pole? :D:D:D:D:D:D

I think that the idea is that because of the quest and digsite update being so close together orthen represents what fossil island on osrs does lore wise which that it is the island the barge is supposed to go to! The museum people would have no way of knowing that it's orthen! Tutorial Island sank yet somehow the wizard's tower is where it used to be! It doesn't have to be the same as osrs but it might be rs3 answer to the barge thing!

Want to hear the idea how Jagex could explain where the barge actually went to a different island but the Varrock people thought it was "Foss..." I wrote up 4 months ago? :D:D:D

"Anyway, if the main or entire purpose of Fossil Island is just for a quest, perhaps it can be done that way:

After a tour to The Arc, the World Guardian is able to gain control of The Harbringer.... so they (think they) can go to the Fossil Island now.

Just sit back and you'll hear a tale. A tale of a fateful trip...Five passengers set sail that day for a 3 month tour, a 3 month tour....

Bummer! They saw Xau-Tak's Black Hand... and misdirected to another island. They think it is the Fossil Island they have long been looking for but in reality it is just an empty island with some quest items. Nothing of value at all except a few mermaids and the Quest Item. Disappointingly the Harbringer returns to Varrock and delivers the news of nothing to the museum."

I believe what Jagex meant is they are not going to make Fossil Island in RS3, but it doesn't mean Fossil Island doesn't exist in RS3. It just is not going to be discovered by the players and any NPC in RS3.

I don't know how this new island thing is going to be made before the whole thing is shown to us. However, my story gave them a very legitimate lore to complete the Varrock Barge expedition story without actually having the players or any NPC to find the original Fossil Island. :D:D:D

And if the barge actually went to a new island in the shadowish spot added to the world map today, it most certainly is not the "Fossil Island" most OSRS players have in mind... and since the barge have sailed and the Varrock museum people thought they have found what they were looking for and that's the end of the tale of the Varrock Barge, and perhaps the end of the original Fossil Island in RS3. :)
