Runic Games has said it doesn’t have any plans to bring Torchlight 2 to consoles, a representative for the company has told VG247.

When asked whether the firm had plans to bring the RPG over to current or next-gen systems, we were told there were “no plans for Torchlight 2 on consoles,” as noted above.

The original Torchlight was released on Xbox 360 back in March 2011, after being announced for the console as well as PlayStation 3 in August 2010; however, since Microsoft became the acting publisher for the XBLA release, the PS3 version was scrapped.

When asked what other nuggets of wonder were being concocted in the bubbling stew over at Runic, we were told that the firm wasn’t at liberty to “share yet what may be in development,” but they’d be happy to let us known when something concrete was ready to be announced.

Last we heard, Ruinc Games was still planning to release a Mac version of Torchlight 2, but it had run into some “unexpected complexities” with it simultaneously alongside its “scramble to ramp up on [its] next project and get it moving forward.”

A date or any further details to share regarding the Mac port of Torchlight 2 were unavailable.

Runic announced that back in June that Torchlight 2 had sold over 2 million copies since its release on PC in September 2012.

The milestone was hit during the Steam Summer Gateway sale, and we know Pat contributed at least €5 to the Torchlight 2 pot during that time.
