Torchlight II Release Date to be Announced Friday, August 31st
Last week we unveiled the new look to the Torchlight II skill panes and the day we have long been waiting for is finally near. A week from today, developer Runic Games will announce the release date for Torchlight II during PAX. As previously stated, the original estimation was that it would be released by the end of Summer, which falls on September 21. I personally think it would be totally awesome if, on August 31, Runic Games surprised us by saying something along the lines of, "Hey, Torchlight II will be unlocked on Steam tonight!" Most likely wishful thinking, but not out of the realm of possibility, nor would such a thing be completely unprecedented – Bethesda did that with Skryim's Dawnguard expansion during QuakeCon 2012. Sure, Dawnguard was merely an expansion that we knew was complete, while Torchlight II is a full game that we know is still being refined as you read this, but still, it's possible. Either way, in just one week, we will know for sure when Torchlight II is being released.
