Runescape creator Jagex has hired veteran designer and Sensible Software co-founder Jon Hare as its head of publishing. Hare, who's held lead design roles on Sensible Soccer and Cannon Fodder, to name a few, will now oversee publishing at the UK developer-publisher. He'll maintain a particular focus on Jagex's online game portal, FunOrb. "Jagex is a traditional and very British games development company as well as being one of Europe’s most successful publishers," said Hare. "I am really excited to be joining the team and I feel very at home here." Jagex's flagship free-to-play browser-based MMORPG Runescape claims some 5.3 million active players per month. The company launched FunOrb early in 2008. Founded in 1999, Jagex claims the status of largest independent developer-publisher in the UK, with 400 staffers across its two Cambridge studios.
