Will Someone Buy Runescape?

Ever since the Internet started, companies have been trying to find ways to make money on it. Lately companies have been advertising in popular virtual worlds, like Second Life. Companies recently bought popular sites like MySpace, Reddit, and Flickr.

With Runescape being so popular these days, and now having 1 million paid members, I wonder if some company will decide to buy Jagex? With the kind of big money being used to buy other sites, someone could make an offer that Jagex could not refuse.

According to Business Week, Sony and News Corp. are said to be interested in paying as much as $400 million for the online virtual world Club Penguin. A more popular site is Runescape. So, I'm wondering if Sony would try to buy Runescape for $400 million. At that price, Jagex might sell.

Their Corporate site still says: "Our ambition for 2006 is to exceed 900,000 subscribers for RuneScape, to take RuneScape into other non-english language markets and to develop further games using our technologies."

If they were to sell Runescape, they could spend time developing new games.

I'm not saying that I want them to sell Runescape; I hope that they don't. If they were to sell, hopefully, the new company would not go over the top with ads in the game.
