Despite Torchlight II being delayed in order to “extensively balance” the game, Runic president Travis Baldree has told Joystiq the firm is still shooting for a summer release. “The end of summer is September 25th or something like that,” said Baldree. “We’re still trying to get it done for summer. It’s a big game and we’ve still got some polish to go. We have a point in development where we’ll say, ‘Okay, we’re ready to announce a date,’ but we’re just not there yet.” So, there’s still hope yet, kiddos.

Writing on the Runic Games forum, founder Travis Baldree offers an explanation of why Torchlight II – once expected well before Diablo III – is taking forever and a week to actually surface. It’s a detailed breakdown which essentially boils down to “it’s hard work to balance the acts of a dungeon crawler”. Well, we saw how long it took Blizzard, and the developer is still tweaking post-launch, so we’ll cut Runic some slack. Torchlight II is still expected sometime this year.

Although we still don’t have a firm release date, you can pre-purchase Torchlight II on Steam right now. The $20 price tag includes a giftable copy of the original, which is still well worth playing, as well as a key to access the Neverwinter closed beta scheduled for later this yet. The dungeon crawling sequel is expected once the initial Diablo III madness dies down, perhaps as early as June.
Thanks, PC Gamer.
