RuneScape reaches 200 million player milestone.

Long-running browser game RuneScape reached its 200 millionth player milestone, developer Jagex Games Studio announced today.

The massively multiplayer game was first launched in 2001 in its beta form before eventually getting a stable release three years later. Since launch the game received numerous graphical updates and changes, including a re-written game engine.

According to the studio, users have played more than 443 billion minutes of game time since launch, while they have caught more than 8 billion fish per year in-game. RuneScape is recognized by Guinness World Records as the world's most popular free massively multiplayer game.

Jagex today released an infograph to commemorate the milestone.
