Torchlight II - Interview @ I.Eat.Games
Blogsite I.Eat.Games has scored an interview with Runic's Max Schaefer to talk about Torchlight II. Here's a sample:
Mark: Ok Max, I’ve got to get this out of the way—What’s the anticipated release date for Torchlight 2?
Max Schaefer: We don’t have a date, but we’re getting very close to announcing that. We’re still thinking late summer. You played the beta and saw the level of polish, and I would say that’s representative of the polish level we’d like to be at for the rest of the game. We’re making really good progress, it’s actually happening faster than we anticipated. We’re also making a lot of changes based on beta feedback. So there’s some skill system changes happening, little tweaks with targeting and running, but for the most part it’s all about polishing up the last 2 acts. It’s going well!
Max also mentions Blizzard started work on Diablo as an MMO when he was still with the company but re-booted the development, which possibly points to why Diablo III has many MMO elements.
Spotted at VG247.
