News Filter: No Torchlight MMO And That's Okay

  • Via Polygon (who got it from, Travis Baldree from Runic Games stated in their recent Reddit AMA that there is no longer a Torchlight MMO on the horizon. And you know what? I'm perfectly okay with that.

  • Travis makes a lot of sense when he says that the landscape has changed. Since they worked on Mythos, they've now delivered two games, both single and multiplayer now, for exceptionally reasonable prices, I'm not sure what more an MMO would bring to the table. And as they say a little bit further down the thread, Runic would like to work on something that's not another Torchlight.

  • While they figure what they want to play, I'm going to dig into TL2 (Thanks, Blue Kae!) and not worry about what else they have up their sleeves for some time.

  1. I'm okay with the no MMO stance too. Unless they feel they can bring something new to the table, there isn't much point.

    They can work on something else, just don't make us wait another decade for Torchlight III. Oh, and an expansion for Torchlight II would be nice. I realize there will be mods, but something official would be nice.

  2. Not everything needs to be an MMO, although I am glad that TL2 allows for coop play.
