Jagex is working on a mystery MMO

    
32

A job posting for a lead programmer revealed that RuneScape developer Jagex is indeed working on a new MMO.

The secretive posting says that the studio is offering “an amazing opportunity for a lead programmer to define the technological path of an undisclosed MMO.” No further details on what this mystery game is were mentioned.

Jagex has had a troubled history of getting a second big online title to market. It has previously developed and canceled Stellar Dawn and Transformers Universe.

Cujo H But Dukes of Hazzard Online would have:

PvP Racing Mechanics.  Exploding arrows. Character skills like ‘Car Hood Slide’ and ‘Perfect 80’s Hair’.  

And three little words:  Daisy. Duke. Shorts.  

Of course, that last thing would probably be a ridiculously overpriced cash shop item.

Colour me skeptical that they’ll actually release it, instead of canning the project and chucking out the devs halfway through it again.

Better be a real MMO for PC only and not some poorly made browser game or no one will care

Mystery MMO? Not Stellar Dawn? They put that on ‘hold’ after 2 years. to work on Transformers Universe.

They will do like Blizzard. Saved what they could from Titan and make that Overlame FPS that will never stand a chance with TF2.

Save that crap names Transformers Universe and make some browser game out of it.

Correct! Heavy on the rum and jerk factor. /sigh
