Last time, I shared that Jagex is looking for Android developers and we assumed that this is because Old School Runescape is going mobile. Could this be true? We do hope so, of course, as this will allow more access to players, potentially attracting the population of people who only use smartphones for games. This for sure will make OSRS gold again.
OSRS Gold Opportunity
With the massive hype Pokemon Go got recently, I don’t think Old School Runescape going with the flow in mobile gaming is a bad move. My assumptions became stronger as they have a second page for hiring an Android developer. Here it is:
