Torchlight II – A Date for a Date August 27, 2012

Posted by Wilhelm Arcturus in Diablo III, entertainment, Torchlight II.

Diablo III has been walking the earth for months now.  It has effectively added 100 levels of character development (sort of) and resolved any number of issues, save the issues that seem to bug people the most… such as that fact that you must be online and logged in to play.

Meanwhile, the challenger Diablo III’s position as the rightful heir to Diablo II has remained fairly quiet.  There has not been much in the way of “real” news about Torchlight II.

There have been tidbits. We have seen updates about which acts have been completed, comparisons with the original Torchilght, and complaints about other studios stealing assets from Runic.  But nothing really concrete has made its way to the public.

Until now.

Runic Games has announced that they will announce the Torchlight II release date this Friday, August 31st, at the Penny Arcade Expo (PAX).

So we will know soon.

My guess is November 5th.  That would put it just before the holidays with enough time for some fixes before the long winter break play sessions begin in earnest.

When do you think we will see Torchlight II?

That would give some time to get some sales before the inevitable Christmas Steam sale, too.


Voice your opinion... but be nice about it...
