While many deem Old School RuneScape to be a thing of the past based on the game’s inauguration back over two decades now, there is still a thriving player base that actively returns to the series. Ultimately, the same is said for the entirety of RuneScape including other iterations that released and are still live from Jagex.

In January, it was reported that Jagex collectively brought in a record high amount of active subscribers divided between all forms of RuneScape. In total, gamesindustry.biz relayed that over 1.1 million recurring users paid and played either RuneScape or Old School RuneScape for the entirety of 2019. And now with many suggested to stay home, that number is only expected to increase.

But for Old School RuneScape in particular, the game faced a new record-breaking amount of players this month. Disclosed by Old School RuneScape Lead Content Developer Mod Kieren, he announced on Twitter that the record was broken as part of the recent Leagues II: Trailblazer which went live.

Collectively, Old School RuneScape has faced 157, 445 active players as of November 1 this month. Surely a milestone many would not anticipate to be occurring in 2020 for the title. For those unfamiliar with Leagues, the mode is available intended for veteran players looking for a challenge when exploring the game’s world.

Elsewhere previously in regards to RuneScape, Jagex shipped the newer version of RuneScape for Steam. The studio disclosed Old School RuneScape will be added at a later date in 2021 outside of the traditional launcher offered by the developer. You can read the full report by heading here.
