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. "Weíre just burnt out," Runic Games President Marsh Lefler explains of the decision to eschew Torchlight 3. "Letís admit it, Diablo 3 is killing it right now. Diablo 3 is a really fun game. Not that Torchlight 2 isnít a fun game, it is, but itís just different. For us to try to compete with Diablo 3? We werenít trying to compete before."

No really they tried and failed with Torchlight.

It's definitely not as good as Diablo 2. No other ARPG is as good as Diablo 2: it's the pinnacle of the genre! But saying they failed isn't very accurate. It's a good game, just not Diablo 2-good. But for those of us who safely have several hundred hours of D2 under their belt and want something similar, TL2 fills that want aptly. I think it's pretty unfair to say they failed with the TL series.

This is a crazy person here if he has "hundreds of hours of D2" and thinks Torchlight 2 is similar and satisfying in that regard.

Couldn't be more off the mark -- D2 hours are suspect.. Shifty
