Runic: Torchlight 3 Before Diablo III

Joystiq quotes Runic Games CEO Max Schaefer saying he thinks they will be able to release Torchlight 3 before Blizzard releases Diablo III, even though Torchlight 2 is not yet complete. When they asked if he was serious, he indicated he was, saying: "I really think we will, I'm not joking about it. I'll be the first to buy Diablo 3, I'm a huge fan. I just know what it's like over there." They also have his reasoning, based on the problems a company as large as Blizzard has making a game as large as the third Diablo: "Blizzard can not get away with doing a Torchlight 1. If they put out a single player game, an RPG that's kinda stripped down for $20, people would say, 'What the hell happened to Blizzard?' They don't have that luxury. Everything has to be super epic. More epic than anything that's come before, more epic than World of Warcraft. They have to do that. It puts them in a really tough spot, I don't envy them. It has to be perfect." Thanks Mike Martinez.
