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.[Source: Gamesindustry.biz]
