JAGEX
I want to point out i have a hard time fighting this issue with the player base if i do not know your rules and obligations to RuneScape as a whole when it comes to cross-play on a system like Xbox. Since Cross-play might be available to RuneScape on that or another console, but not knowing if you have any details over this topic or limits of what this topic has onit.

We as a player base, when it comes to a topic like this can only guess if it be bad or good. We can see the bad parts of what it can do and get scared if it did happen would it ruined our game even more as the community breaks apart more than it has been from the past mist

Since Elder Scrolls Online Game has been out for Xbox for years, Why is JAQEX not placing RuneScape on the Xbox system or other type of system? Since RuneScape can now be played on Xbox One since it now supports keyboard & mouse input hookups.

I think their should be no reason or limits to why a game like this can not be placed on the Xbox system. In other words what would need to happen to get Xbox support for RuneScape 3 and how can we do this or what limits are placed on RS3 from doing this and what meant stop JAGEX from placing it on the Xbox gaming system?

I understand that you would like RuneScape to be available to play on Xbox.

At this time, we are unaware of plans to make RuneScape available on Xbox. Please do keep an eye on the website, as any announcement would be made there, should this situation change.

You could also post your thoughts on the official forums. This will ensure your thoughts are being posted in a location where the development team can see not only your desire for the game to be brought to that platform, but also the response of the community to that request.

I hope this helps to explain the situation and answers your questions.

I do understand this.
(We read threads I get the back 99% of the time but we do not reply).

The problem with posting this on forums is, I can wait years to hear feedback from JAGEX or never hear feedback on a topic. I just do not see the support in this area fulled with pc owners that don’t own anything else, they have no gain and why would they care? They are not Xbox or Sony or Nintendo community members. So I will get a little base of support and a good idea and its feedback is basically ignored at that point.

I would like this to be taken to the dev team and also have them comment back to a system like Xbox, and we can also learn of the limitations if their is any right now on the dev team side of things of supporting this type of work that might have to be done to gain it on a gaming system type like Xbox. RuneScape is a great game that is being overshadowed by other games that are moving forward and RuneScape still has okay graphics. This game will slowly die We both know this, that is the reason it’s being placed on mobile phones for a boost.

Xbox and Sony has been around for a very long time. You cannot tell me Jagex has never looked into it. I would like to really know the reasons not, we don’t know anything at this time. (Was it looked at in the past ever?) Like maybe it take years not having a game engine and rs being HTLM5 gaming webpage ready only.

I own an XB1 and a (obviously) a PC. RS on Xbox is a stupid idea when crossplatform is currently impossible due to Sony being stubborn with sharing anything with Microsoft and not only is it stupid for that reason alone - but also because it would effectively create three versions of RS3 if both major platforms had their own version.

If you also mean OS as well that means that the community would be split amongst what.. 6 different versions? An MMO's main focus should be on having a single community - not one that's segregated from each other.

Nevermind the fact the game runs on a tile movement system. Unless there comes a day when we can play together (just about caught myself there haha) regardless of platform this will forever be a bad idea just on the segregation itself.

Daibhi,
"Crossplatform is currently impossible"
----------------------------

Fortnight is cross-play and MS and Sony support both fornite and you can play with Gold members and Sony members and PC & Phone & Nintendo Users. (In this case)

I agree both partys might not agree but we dont have to support a party that dont agree. This would just make people that want cross-play on a system that is more open to it.

This would also up the sell for that companys system if the buyers goal was RuneScape cross-play title enabled. Just like the people bought the Gears Xbox just to play that title only. But we are not trying to sell systems here we want RuneScape on console. Our goal is to make RuneScape on a console that will support cross-play, and i believe that would be a great start to a better RuneScape as a whole.

Micrsoft said they want to add more cross-play title games, so i believe Xbox is the best place to start with RuneScape on a console. As Xbox seems to have the support lined up and the power and interest in this line of field to do so and more open to the idea of cross-play games being added to their gaming marketplace.

Daibhi,
"The fact the game runs on a tile movement system."
----------------------------

So the tile movement system is changed a little what is the big deal? You also can use your mouse if you don't like the movement system if it feels wrong and you cannot get used to it if they added RuneScape to xbox. this also All could mean is they would have to fix or changed for a XBOX controller or whatever.

I do think this can be done and I think Jagex has the people in the building to do it.

Daibhi,

----------------------------

No the community would not be split. JAGEX would do the right thing and go with the right company to not split the community. Im sure it can be done.

We already have a split community between old RuneScape to New RuneScape. I just want to point that out to you. I still would not want it split even more myself but this would not be up to me.

Jagex will pick not us becuse as you know. Jagex will read what we have to say but do what they like even if we pick to give them feedback on how we like it be done. They still will do it their own way!!!

Name how many cross platform MMOs there are which don't segregate their community where you can seamlessly play with PC/Xbox/Playstation users and I only want to see specifically MMOs - nothing else.

Yes, the community would be split. ESO is one example as you've got the PC version which is split by continent (NA/Europe) as opposed to how RS works and then you've got both console version which don't interact with either each other nor the PC version because they're all separate entities to each other.

I'm pretty sure Jagex would have to, quite literally, build the game from the ground up for it to be even remotely possible to work on any other system than PC. RS is click and point, this will not work well on console.

The only way RS would ever work on console is if it's completely crossplatform and it would possibly be one way of reviving the game from the throes of its painfully slow and dragged out death. Why? It would be a massive boom in population possibly so much so that it could return the game back to when I remember it used to have 1m+ playing at any given time and 700k+ at non peak times.

Sorry i had to edit this becuse it was not clear by what you said.

Micrsoft just started cross-play. Sony was being a hard-head not wanting crossplay so that is the reason crossplay has taken so long. ESO PC TO XBOX to PlayStation. They have not agreed to crossplay with them games so it has none right now. Could cross-play be added to them games. You will have to ask ESO the reasoning behind the cross-play issue of why it still has not been completed or done.

You do know they just started cross-play right?
So they will have only a handful at this time.

Like I said, until the day comes that it's techincally possible to have seamlesss crossplatform across PC, Xbox and Playstation - this is a stupid idea, as I've explained why above. Until that is an actual realistic thing to do this is nothing more than a fledgling idea still struggling to break out of its shell.

Point the finger at Sony, if I recall Microsoft is game for crossplatform but Sony doesn't want to play ball.

Also just to add on to this, regarding your comment about the community already being split due to OS/RS3 - Jagex shot themselves in the foot and destroyed a once strong and single community with that decision. Just because that is actually a thing doesn't make it right and to do it across effectively 6 versions is just crazy considering this is an MMO.
