RuneScape Tablet Port in the Works

Thanks to an interview with IGN we learn that RuneScape developer Jagex, currently about to publish RuneScape 3, a new revision of the title, is also working on porting the MMO to tablets. On top of that, there are ambitious future plans too:
"We're working really, really hard to do tablets by Q4 this year," he announced. "I see [smartphones] as a window into the game, so I think even mobile is right for RuneScape, but it's probably as a subset or augmentation of the game rather than the core game experience.

"Tablet is more akin to your laptop so the game is more naturally transposed to that. I'm also very excited about Smart TVs; I don't think we're that far away from being able to do something very interesting there."

He even suggested that RuneScape could one day make its way onto consoles, though acknowledged that Jagex wouldn't be happy unless PlayStation owners could play with Microsoft gamers.

"Consoles are easy," he said, with tongue firmly in cheek. "If you can just get the console manufacturers to play nice with each other and stop fragmenting the community then we could do something there too.
