    GF Jagex. If you know who the Carlyle Group is, you must be asking the same question as me. Why? I can understand the immediate reasoning behind the acquisition. It is Covid season. However, it is temporary. Why spend more than 500M on a video game? Do you know anything about the Carlyle Group? Let me break this down for you in simplest form. They are a group of the worlds most powerful. They are made up of former USA presidents, World Bank Treasurers, Asian Powerbrokers and more. My question is, what do they want with Jagex?

    I do have to forecast that RS will be given new life. The Carlyle Group is the worlds wealthiest investment firm.

    Here is where they are located:
    It is hard to imagine an address closer to the heart of American power. The offices of the Carlyle Group are on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington DC, midway between the White House and the Capitol building, and within a stone's throw of the headquarters of the FBI and numerous government departments.
    Lol, what do they want with RS.

    As long as they’re not interested in rsps, it’ll be fine.

    More people coming to RS gives also life back again to RSPS potentially.

    If all it took was money to make money then good products (games) wouldn't exist. It's not limited by investing, it's limited by how good they can make it. If other people could just invest money, they could beat RS. What they need most is an original thought. A lot to ask for, it's been a long time.

    They actually want to push new games through Jagex and are not interested in RuneScape
