Old School Runescape’s Bounty Hunter worlds could shut down due to “gold farmers”

Old School Runescape developer Jagex has decided to close the MMORPG title’s Bounty Hunter worlds “until further notice” due to concerns about “gold farmers” abusing them. The studio has informed players of the player-killing minigame’s closure in an update post on the game’s website, saying it’s “sorry to announce that we’ve taken the decision to close the Bounty Hunter worlds until further notice”. The reason behind it, Jagex explains, is that the mode’s “design unfortunately leaves it prey to gold farmers, who abuse its mechanics to generate GP in excess of the amounts available via legitimate methods.” While it seems the extent of this gold farming hasn’t yet reached a point where it’s impacting Old School Runescape’s in-game economy, the studio explains it “undermines other game content and the overall integrity of the game.” Due to the issues existing before a rework of Bounty Hunter in November 2019, the devs “do not believe that simply undoing it would solve them”, adding that “this is quite clearly not the outcome that any of us wanted, but right now we’re convinced it’s the best option available to us.” Source : https://www.pcgamesn.com/old-school-runescape/bounty-hunter
