I just watched a great gameplay video of Torchlight II from Pax East. The Torchlight II programmer who was doing the play by play said that release date was very close, and it was possible to release before or after D3. I think Runic would sell way more games if Torchlight II was released before D3. The loyal Torchlight fans are going to purchase the game no matter when it is released. But There are many other gamers who are foaming at the mouth for D3, and would love to sink their teeth into a game that plays fairly the same way. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity. I hope Runic Games does not pass it up.
