So much for the targeted 2011 launch of Runic’s Torchlight II
. Runic recently announced that the game would be delayed into next year, officially. According to the statement posted on the game’s official website
“Well, yeah. We did - and we made a good run at that. We've come to the realization, however, that getting a game of this scope up to the quality and polish level we want to achieve is going to take a little longer; especially since we want to run a small beta before release to ensure that our launch is smooth.”
I don’t think that any of us are going to complain about a delay considering the quality that we expect from the game. Runic shocked the world with the first game and they think that their sequel is even bigger and better, so let’s take their word for it and have faith in their decision.
