British success story Jagex continues to expand its senior management team with the promotion of Rob Smith to COO.

In recent months, the company has recruited veteran game designer Jon Hare and promoted CTO Mark Gerhard to CEO.

All eyes now are on MechScape, a game that has been three years in gestation. The game “is a sci-fi game, with game mechanics that are completely different from any other MMO out there", according to lead designer Henrique Olifiers in an interview with Eurogamer.

MechScape will be Jagex’s difficult second album. Here’s hoping the team pull it off.
