Old School Runescape downloaded 1m times in first 24 hours on iOS

Old School Runescape’s mobile debut brought the venerable MMORPG over one million downloads.

Releasing on October 30th, the iOS version of the classic online PC game became a No.1 hit in eight countries over the first 24 hours and placed in the top 10 in 15 countries total. One million new iOS players join an existing, similarly sized crowd playing through a members-only Android beta.

All platforms combined, Old School Runescape hit its highest ever daily average user figures during mobile launch week. That’s following news that the long-running MMO has earned over $1.064 billion in lifetime revenue as of June this year.

“After five years of successive growth since its PC launch in 2013, the arrival of Old School RuneScape on mobile is a hugely important milestone for Jagex in taking the RuneScape franchise multiformat,” said Jagex CEO Phil Mansell.
