Runic has announced that it’s going to make an announcement, but we’ll forgive them because this is one we’ve all been waiting for. The indie team will finally put a release date to anticipated dungeon crawler sequel Torchlight II this week, specifically on August 31. The announcement will coincide with PAX Prime, which kicks off that day and runs through September 2. Torchlight II has been delayed several times and has been in development since at least August 2010, when Runic announced it was shifting focus from a proposed MMORPG in the same universe to a straight sequel with multiplayer features. The original Torchlight released in 2009 and sold over 1 million copies; its development team includes a number of Diablo franchise veterans.
