Job to expand content

While not the most popular MMO in the world, RuneScape has steadily gathered an ever larger following of dedicated players. During what many describe the largest surge in popularity in the game's history, Jagex (the game's developer) has announced that former THQ exec Vince Farquharson will join and head up the team.

Farquharson will focus on expanding RuneScape through further content development and launching the game in new territories.

At THQ, Farquharson was creative director and development director for three years, overseeing titles including Moto GP 06 and 07, Worms: Open Warfare 1 and 2, Worms: A Space Oddity, Warhammer 40,000: Squad Command and Broken Sword: The Angel of Death.

Good luck Vince, and welcome to the RuneScape Team!
