Ollett added: “It’s great to be joining Jagex at such an interesting time. Jagex has very ambitious 3rd party plans and l look forward to helping to establish Jagex not only as a world class developer, but also as the service based publisher of choice for online developers around the world.”

As well as previously managing licensing and the development of third-party MMO games at Bigpoint, Ollett has also worked at Dubit and Fun Technologies as VP of business development.
