Shandong Honda has reportedly acquired the Runescape developer
Chinese mining company Shandong Honda has acquired Jagex for $300m time, the Financial Times has reported.
Jagex is best known for Runescape, and was on-course for a strong financial year. The firm had rebounded after a series of disappointing mobile game flops, plus the collapse of its ambitious MMO Transformers Universe.
It was the biggest independent UK games publisher and developer, with 200m accounts on Runescape.
