The company is in the process of launching new versions of its 17-year-old Runescape franchise for the Asian market through its Chinese parent company Fukong Interactive, which brought Jagex for $300m in 2016.Runescape, a multi-user game set in a fantasy world, is considered one of the pioneers of the online fantasy genre and was first launched in 2001.

New Runescape titles are scheduled for launch in 2019 after Fukong's deal brought in rights to market Jagex's intellectual property.But since the deal, Fukong has suffered from falling revenues and profits. Shanghai-listed Fukong's most recent financial three-month results saw revenues slump 50pc to CNY 101 (?1m).The Chinese company's share price has fallen 87pc since the start of the year amid a government crackdown on gaming addiction.
