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.
