Jagex, Bigpoint Partner For  RuneScape  In France, Germany

Jagex, Bigpoint Partner For RuneScape In France, Germany

May 27, 2010 | By Leigh Alexander




RuneScape house Jagex is partnering with German browser game portal Bigpoint to serve its titles -- beginning with the popular fantasy MMO -- to Bigpoint's users in Germany and France.

Bigpoint's DevLounge game integration service takes credit for the rollout -- it's designed to make it easier for independent companies to launch their games on BigPoint's portal, the company explains.

According to BigPoint, the advantage for game companies is the portal's community of players -- it boasts over 120 million registrations, although doesn't specify how many of those are active players.

According to Jagex's head of online strategy Oliver Kern, it's a natural fit: "Bigpoint has achieved phenomenal success in France and Germany echoing our own success in the USA, UK and other English speaking territories, so we are confident that RuneScape will be an excellent addition to their games portal," he said.

"We believe Jagexs current portfolio of games will strongly compliment Bigpoints existing titles, and we are really looking forward to releasing more Jagex games through the Bigpoint network in due course," he added.

Jagex will host, manage and support its own titles; BigPoint acts as online publisher, with responsibility for marketing and payment processing. Bigpoint said that serving popular RuneScape is an example of is strategy to offer "a wide range of gaming options" to its players.
