Runic “would love to see” Torchlight II on consoles

Runic Games boss Max Schafer has said he’d “love to see” Torchlight II appear on consoles.

Speaking in to Digital Spy (via TSA), Schafer admits it all depends on the success of Torchlight for Xbox Live Arcade, though.

“That’s absolutely something we look forward to doing. We’re a small studio so we have to focus and do one thing at a time and sometimes that means we have to make some hard decisions on what we can’t do,” said Schafer.

“We’re going to look at what happens with Torchlight on Xbox, and in an ideal world we’d like to say right now that we’re going to do Torchlight II on a console, but wisdom says we have to wait and see and evaluate when we get to that point.

“Having said that, I would love to see Torchlight II and the [Torchlight] MMO come to the console – there would be a big market for it.”

Torchlight releases on Xbox Live Arcade on March 9. Torchlight II was recently delayed into July because of development on the former.

    There doesn’t go a day by without an article or news story on this or that PC exclusives is coming to consoles.

    But do we ever see some of the press begging for a PC version of console only title? No.

    Both piracy and the press are killing PC gaming.
