Remember that the construction contracts was just polled several weeks leading up to RS gold its release, yet they got it completed and published in under a month. We still have content declared years ago that only keep getting postponed. To be reasonable and please do not mistaken this comment as me defending Jagex's delays in any fashion, the development time and resources for OSRS content is a lot more economical and easier to manage than the dev time and resources required for RS3.
Now that being said, it doesn't function as a justification into the RS3 Dev team! Especially considering they're making enough profits through MTX and are very well equipped to make content on a balanced basis. My biggest issue is that the real game material keeps getting postponed, but do you believe they ever postpone MTX promos? Not a Opportunity.
Why I don't give them an excuse for it. If they're able to setup a live ops team that is devoted to creating MTX related articles and delivering said content in a timeframe, why can't they upscale their center content team to deliver the exact same level of articles whilst keeping it inside the ETAs they mention to us. So many times I feel like Jagex is a indie dev studio but that'd be an insult to the amazing work even indie dev studios are able to dish out.
It was officially announced about RuneScape
If they are able to set up a live ops team that's devoted to buy OSRS gold generating MTX related articles and delivering said content in a time, why can not they upscale their center content group to supply the exact same level of articles whilst keeping it within the ETAs they mention to us.
