Apparently fukong is getting rid of Jagex

https://www.reddit.com/r/runescape/comments/ajo4uv/parent_company_fukong_plans_to_sell_off_its/

Assuming this is true and not just some media garbage, I think EA will get Jagex now. Now that'd be funny.

Oh here

Well, this can only be a win-win at this point; if the new owner removes Treasure Hunter and doesn't replace it with another P2W MTX method, then it's obviously a godsend. And if the new owner takes an even bigger piss with the MTX, it's gonna break the camel's back and something will have to change drastically. :P

Hopefully the former though, because it's a shame how poorly Jagex has treated RS3, and it'd be about time for a change.

Mod JD posted the following corporate statement earlier today:

On January 23rd, Fukong Interactive issued a regulatory statement to advise the Chinese financial market that it is planning a major reorganisation and is considering sale of assets, with the partial or full sale of Jagex as a potential option. A sale of assets is one of multiple routes Fukong Interactive has available as it restructures and, by making this initial statement to the market, Fukong can now begin exploring such options.

Whatever the outcome of Fukongís restructure, it wonít change how you play RuneScape or Old School, and it doesnít affect our plans as we continue to invest in growing Jagex, RuneScape and Old School, building on our record-breaking years, and ensuring we bring you all the new content and updates we have in the works, in addition to more quality of life improvements.

Hm, your way to optimistic. No offence Blackwing.

I don't think TH will ever change. In fact I think the next company to get their hands on Jagex will be even worse.

@Nubby Nubnub, JD said that it's "one of 'those' corporate statements", as if he referred to previous corporate statements from Jagex, which have pretty much always lied about how various changes like this to the company aren't going to change the everyday stuff like monetization. So one way or another, something will probably change, even if that statement denies it.

Heh, no need to worry about that. :P

Regarding TH never changing, I mean, had you told a scaper before SoF arrived that it'd arrive, they would've laughed in your face and not believe you, but it did come. So even though it might seem unlikely at the moment that TH would be removed, it's no more impossible than it was for SoF to be added. All it takes is for a higher-up to order it to be removed, and a "factory floor" jmod to remove it from the code of the game's active build.

Yeah like that'll happen. I think.

I believe the saying was..

Money is just like competitive gaming. They often bring out the worst in people. Case in point: League, Dota, The COD series and GTA.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

The dream would be the removal of Treasure Hunter and microtransactions, but at this point, I doubt it. Once someone or something becomes as greedy as Jagex, it's very hard to break that habit.. it's like a gnawing need. The want for more and more.

I have a feeling it is either going to get worse or just stagnate.

Who knows, we might actually get an investor that actually cares about something other than just money.
