Runic Games has announced that Torchlight II will release on Thursday September 20, 2012.
Company president Travis Baldree made the announcement on the official Torchlight II blog, meaning there’s less than a month to go until the dungeon-crawling rival to Diablo III is available.
The official Release Date for Torchlight II is Thursday, September 20, 2012. Three weeks away!
"I don’t think there’s much else I could say that would interest you right now, so – the official Release Date for Torchlight II is Thursday, September 20, 2012. Three weeks away!" he said.
"We’ll announce it ‘more’ officially and bigger tomorrow. You know first! Thank all of you for being an awesome and patient community, we look forward to getting this into your hands!"
Developed by the same creative masterminds behind Diablo I and II, the original Torchlight released in 2009 to positive reviews, though many criticised its lack of multiplayer support. As a result, the team have pursued peer-to-peer multiplayer for Torchlight II, and they plan to carry the knowledge derived from this experience with them as they begin work on the Torchlight MMO.
Torchlight II will be available both through Steam and in retail form in September.
