Runelowersaid: Dilbert2001said: Actually player count has been going up for RS3, even if you think concurrent player count is the "player count", it is also going up for RS3 since April of this year.
Don't forget its down from 40k in 2016 to almost 20k in 2019 a bit of a resurgence doesn't do much.
Don't forget it is just the concurrent player count. Jagex is actually making more and more money every year, from both membership and MTX.
Besides, why would Jagex give away membership charge when their actual paid members are going up? It would only make sense to convert to free-to-play when their game is nosediving in subs, but that game is not RS3.
