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. :)
I already said they didn't half to be the same but osrs and rs3 lore stopped being joined at the hip a long time ago and also would they have gone to the trouble of the graphical and other rework just to end it with nothing else added! Also the whole kudos thing is supposed to guarantee on the (unfinisished mind you) boat(no longer a barge) the NPCs make that very clear!Also it being orthen and the dragonkin association could techinically allow them to say it's not really fossil island therefore their earlier post is still true! Plus if the island isn't going to be a thing why add it to the map! The fog is obviously there attract attention(although the transcript of desperate might also indicate it means it is indeed orthen!

Did you notice the shadowish cloud thing on the RS3 today is not at the same location of the OSRS Fossil Island?

I reiterate I said that they don't have to be same thing! The Island appeared with the digsite update so it seems likely that is where the barge/boat goes! They also finally put the boat near water instead of in the middle of the site! You tell me what the NPCs dialogue means! The woman referred to it as TIFKAFI so technically maybe that's what jagex's earlier post actulally means!

it does seem like they're teasing it pretty hard


Yes. You probably get teased pretty hard when Jagex uncover that "storm", "cloud" or whatever and it doesn't look anything remotely close to the "Foss... " in your mind.... and then perhaps you can tell everything "hey I knew it all along becaue that stormy cloud thing is not even at where Foss is". :P

Yes but this is because a lot of player still expect both games updates to get the same care and attention! Players have been asking for monkey madness 2 almost as long as the original quest has been out! No one expects osrs Elf City to look the same as rs3's elf city (and if it does people are going to complain about why the final quest and city took so long in rs3)!

OSRS Priff is still in the same place as RS3 Priff.

Jagex also said The Arc, Fossil Island and Zeah are all in the same place as the grand map of Gielinor shows, regardless of RS3 or OSRS. They are all in the SAME PLACES.

If some day when Jagex unveil the "island" the digsite worker talked about and the barge goes there but it turns out to be not the Fossil Island on the official Jagex Gielinor Map, it means they no longer has any lore left to go to the actual Fossil Island. :D

Jagex is allow to change their minds and the maps and gielinor have the scale theory thing applied they could all be there the arc is a bunch of islands IT could be on of the uninhabited ones and Jagex debated adding zeah in the surveys so nothing is set in stone! Jagex said no more skills,no 120 skills other than dungeoneering all they changed their mind about! Heck they debated not giving us menaphos till the end desert storyline as a final reward! I heard about the map and it was probably meant to just mention everything from both games!! Does the map show Acheron anywhere on it ?

I wouldn't have believed you if they hadn't updated the digsite area.

IT'S HAPPENING BOYS.

the dragonkin ties to fossil island in osrs pretty much seal the deal. For reference, in OSRS there's "Fossil Island" as the main island with an overgrown dragonkin lab on it, and "Lithkren", a formerly dragonkin-inhabited island off its coast.

Much like OSRS's take on Prifddinas, we can probably expect some similarities, but not necessarily the same look or content contained within. We're basically a diverged timeline, to put it simply. Think Warlords of Draenor in WoW.
Headcanon Haven, where everything is made up and the points don't matter.
