Runescape developer Jagex has said that there’s a possibility that the HTML5-powered RuneScape 3 could eventually come to home consoles. Jagex CEO Mark Gerhard has told IGN that they are preparing to bring the popular MMO title to tablet devices sometime during the fourth quarter. Gerhard says that bringing RuneScape 3 to consoles would be a reasonably simple process, but admits that it would be difficult for the console manufacturers to play nice with each other and stop fragmenting the community.
“Consoles are easy, If you can just get the console manufacturers to play nice with each other and stop fragmenting the community then we could do something there too.”
“Ultimately, you’ve got to go where you think the ball’s going to be, rather than chasing after it. Sometimes that means you have to make decisions without necessarily having all the data to say that it’s the right call, or that you can do it.”
