"Yesterday we spoke with the developers of RuneScape gold known HD projects and requested them to stop working on their projectssince it is a subject we are directly investigating," Jagex stated. Jagex wrote to 117 that its work on an HD edition of Old School Runescape was "still quite early in its exploration phases" but "very far from being finished."
"Naturally this implies that any fan-driven project that seeks to change the way Old School RuneScape looks will not be compatible with our plans," Jagex wrote to 117. "We consider it vital that there is consistency with regards to the way Old School appears as a result, so we'd like to make certain that our official changes are the only ones to be made available.
It is our hope that the announcement about the fact that Jagex together with Old School team are tackling this project seriously is something that excites you even though it might mean that we need to respectfully request that you stop your own personal project."
117 reported that they offered Jagex their side of the bargain in the form of removing their application once Jagex had released theirs and buy 2007 runescape gold giving Jagex "collaborative control" over the design of Runelite HD's.
