Even with Diablo III closing in on launch there are lots of us out there who are waiting for news on when Runic Games' Torchlight II is going to be released.

Talking to Joystiq at PAX East this weekend, Runic's Max Schaefer said:

"Well, I'm sure you've noticed Diablo has announced a date. So, we don't want to fall right on that. The real answer is when [Torchlight 2] is finished, is Diablo 3 right now? Then we'll wait."

"Be patient. Our total development time on this game is going to be about two years, which is not unreasonably long for this type of game. We're going as fast as we can. It'll be worth the wait, it'll totally be worth the wait. In the long run, people will be happy we took this extra time."

Schaefer added that ideally Torchlight II would launch a month after Diablo III, but that he wouldn't rush it to get it out during that time.

REVIEW. Written by Thomas Blichfeldt

"Not once have I encountered problems of either the technical or gameplay-destructive kind - this is clearly a project of passion."
