Torchlight Burns Out Runic

Runic Games recently announced Hob, an upcoming exploration game, and during a conversation at PAX, IGN learned from the developer that burn out and a reluctance to compete with Diablo III are the reasons they chose not to pursue development of a third Torchlight game at this time. "We’re just burnt out," Runic Games President Marsh Lefler explains of the decision to eschew Torchlight 3. "Let’s admit it, Diablo 3 is killing it right now. Diablo 3 is a really fun game. Not that Torchlight 2 isn’t a fun game, it is, but it’s just different. For us to try to compete with Diablo 3? We weren’t trying to compete before."

I would love a 3/4 perspective sci fi ARPG. The only ones that really come to mind over the last 20 years are Space Seige and the Crusader series. Wish Runic had done something like that.

It would be very cool to have things like a crap ton of weapons, teleporters, force fields, enemy robots, mutants, xenomorphs, ship levels, planet levels, space levels, etc. etc. There's so much room for variety.

Is there one out there I'm missing?

Hellgate is just like that, but it's first person and third person. I've said this a million times here, but it's my favorite ARPG of all time and it has a much better system than D3 in my opinion. Well, it's not exactly like you say. It's not in space... But it's definitely futuristic.

Hellgate Global being the only persistent FPS ARPG (after all the changes/booing) made it appealing right away to me, but it was a solid fun game. I hopped on it occasionally all the way up to the last couple years.

One thing I've been hornblowing about for years getting a properly done FPS ARPG. Borderlands could take that to the bank in western markets, but they're going Asian, so who knows.
Yours truly,
