Jagex acquisition won’t lead to RuneScape’s business models changing, CEO confirms

The CEO of Jagex, Phil Mansell, has reassured players of the developer and publisher’s massively multiplayer online role-playing games, RuneScape and Old School RuneScape, that the company being acquired won’t negatively impact the games. Namely, “there are no intentions of changing our [games’] business models.”

In case you missed it, on Friday, February 9, it was confirmed that Jagex was being sold by investment firm Carlyle to CVC Capital Partners and Haveli Investments. A news release described CVC as “a leading global private markets manager,” with “approximately €188 billion [around $202.5 billion or £160.5 billion] of assets under management.”
