This was a canceled project like all other expansions.
To be honest it sounded really awesome, but I think this is one of those projects that do not work well if it gets added in game.


It is not cancelled. Jagex just want to finish their Unfinished Business before refocusing on this dynamic weather/time, Elder Gods Quests they once proposed.

All I did read on the home page and forums that they abandon the expansions.
Did they say on reddit or something that they continue on the projects?
To be honest that would be awesome, but I didn't see it anywhere.

Dynamic weather is hardly an "expansion". While some smaller scale or minor game improvements may be called "expansions" or "reworks" by some minor games, in RS3 these kinds of improvements are not called "expansions". :D

I fully agree this should not be called expansion in first place. but sadly they did and that's why I fear it will never happen.

If Jagex say may be in future its basically never.
My own chapel still on that list :(

No. Jagex never said dynamic weather was an "expansion". The expansions they referred to were the large updates that came with new area, content, quests and and such as in The Arc, Priffdinas and Menaphos. They explicitly indicated they are in favor of rework of existing areas and quests over new ones. Nothing was said about dynamic weather among other things. Obviously we will still see Player Owned Farm because it is not the expansions Jagex talked about.

If I am not mistaken, this was one of the lowest priorities for unfinished business. Even though the haven't finished much business so far....

However, it isn't just because of this, but because they want to make it bigger than it needs to be. They stated they just didn't want it to be a cosmetic feature, which most of us wanted, and they wanted it to effect the game, which most didn't ask for.

Because of the size of the update, it will probably be on hold until some of the bigger projects like M&S Rework and Runescape Mobile is finished. Because both of those are taking a massive chunk out of the budget they have.


Also, weather was never an expansion. They never confirmed what the other 2 expansions were. So anything someone says was supposed to be an expansion is wrong. Most thought the second expansion would be skilling based. No one had any idea what the 3rd would have been.
Come the Sixth-Age, the world will need the World Guardian.
