Fans of Runic Games’ Torchlight series are going to have to wait a little longer for the sequel, Torchlight 2
. Max Schaefer, CEO of Runic, has confirmed that the title has been delayed past its expected May release into July.
The announcement of the delay was made in an interview with DigitalSpy
and cited the cause as being dedication to the XBLA port of the first game. I don’t think that anyone is going to complain giving the XBLA release being only a few short weeks away. Schafer also noted that there were some lessons learned in the development of the XBLA version that influenced some late additions to the PC version of Torchlight 2.
