    Torchlight II Now to Be Released in July

    Digital Spy had a short talk with Max Schaefer where he revealed that Torchlight II will be pushed back from it's previous May or June release date due to the amount of work required for the Xbox version. However, also due to the Xbox version, there are a few little optimizations and improvements that have snuck their way into Torchlight II.

    "I'd say that the Xbox project, having to do the extra work with the interface, has pushed us back a little bit, so we're probably talking July right now for Torchlight II," he explained.

    "It's going great, however. We've actually got some optimisations and technical improvements that went into making the Xbox version that we've been able to go back and implement into Torchlight II for PC.

    Re: Torchlight II Now to Be Released in July

    A little disappointed to hear the news as I had hoped it would come out in May as i had some free time then.

    However, it'll make for a better game in the long run. More stuff, more polish, better balance etc.

    I'd like to see more info about the game though. The anticipation is killing me. :P

    To be fair though, apparently every news site has completely ignore Max's disclaimer that went along with talking about release information. There never has been a set Release Date, so this is more of an estimate adjustment than it is a delay.

    Ah ok.

    That makes sense.

    Any time line on when new information is going to be released about the game?

    Any gaming conventions coming up or anything?

    Re: Torchlight II Now to Be Released in July

    Well, it's not Spring, but a lot of interviews have gone on since August with different estimates. Once they set a date, like when they chose October 27th for the original date and put out a press release, then it has a release date, but until then it is only rough estimates.

    As for new information, it is unlikely we will see anything until after the XBLA release next month.

    The delay is bad because we have to wait for but if we think of it, there gonna be improvments, and we can still have fun playing the XBLA version of Torchlight, wich gonna come out on March 4th, so I think the wait gonna definetly worth it

    As I've really only started playing Torchlight this gives me a chance to get more into it, both the XBLA and PC versions. I'm sorry you guys who have known about the game so long have to wait tho.
