Prettier than this.

There’s a new boss in town at Jagex. Rod Cousens, previously the CEO of Codemasters, has moved shop to be the new CEO of Jagex. His now-vacant post at Codemasters will be occupied by the company’s COO, Frank Sagnier.

Jagex, best known for RuneScape, has recently undergone several layoffs and cancelled its Transformers Universe title before it had even left beta. Its previous CEO, Mark Gerhard, had announced his planned departure from the company back in September. Jagex’s official statement claims that Cousen will be overseeing the launch of two new games along with an undisclosed number of other games currently in development away from the public eye.

jhuynh405 EBreezy Seed is a MMO adventure designed for social interaction and diplomatic engagement rather than battle sequences and other standard MMO designs.  I wanted this game so bad. Everytime I think of Jagex and new MMO, I think about Seed. I don’t know much about Codemasters, though

EBreezy Seed? Was that a racing game project from Codemasters?

Jagex comes off similar to CCP imo – a one trick pony that doesn’t really know how to do anything beyond their initial successful title that grew bigger than they thought it would.
