I appreciate all the wonderful exciting changes you keep adding but wouldnt it be smart to get the Mobile version working before adding a bunch of new stuff to the game so that the Mobile version doesnt fall behind? Why are you not focused on getting it completed so we can all play RS Mobile. I am a computer programmer and i know how priorities change and projects get put on the back burner but I bought an Android device just to play, but I cant get in. Just get it done? It's almot there right? Please. I have been playing for over 15 years and have hurt my back leaning forward to reach the computer or laptop. If i could play on the Mobile device, i could sit back and enjoy. :) So either please get it finished or let me in. thanks

Mod Osborne:

"Will the Big Summer Update release be the new 'Mobile in Winter 2017'? No, it's about 7/8ths done. We're very confident in that."


7/8ths done, right after summer or around Runefest 2019 probably. :)

The big Summer update was Anachronia, not Mobile.

The 7/8ths done is now 8/8 done and released, mobile however is not.

Jmod said RS3 Mobile was 7/8th done when making that reply. The lastest comment from another Jmod made yesterday was:

"That’ll (the lesser abilities update will) come out with the big Mobile update, alongside the buff bar system rework and the 3 free additional action bars!"


Still not sure if there will be any iOS beta, but some big RS3 Mobile announcement may come soon.

The "Big Summer Update" was a name for an undisclosed update that no one knew was coming. Mobile has been announced since 2016, Anachronia has been announced since May. The comment that says 7/8 done was prior to Anachronia being announced, but after it started being referred to as the "Big Summer Update", or the XXL update, around Runefest 2018.

There is absolutely no way the reference to "big summer update" means mobile, the 7/8ths done was Anachronia, not Mobile. The comparison to "Big summer update" and "mobile in 2017" is a joke about how Mobile in 2017 never happened, and how updates are often delayed, the JMods reply had nothing to do with Mobile.

As for actual Mobile news, we know to expect an open Android Beta for members in the next few weeks, and likely a closed beta for iOs a few weeks prior to full release, which based on the OSRS timeline, would pin RS3 full mobile release around November

Big Summer Update and Big Mobile Update are two different updates for sure.
