Torchlight 2 Could Still Come to the Mac
Runic Games' Torchlight was one of the most anticipated games when it was launched back in 2009, mainly because of the fact that the company was co-founded by two ex-Diablo creators. The game was well-received and sold over a million copies, which led to a sequel - Torchlight 2.
Torchlight 2 was released in September last year and offers many improvements and new features over its predecessor. Most notably, it offers a cooperative multiplayer gameplay mode. Prior to Torchlight 2's launch, Runic Games has said that the game will be available on both PC and Mac. However, it has been nearly a year and the Mac version of the game is still no where to be seen, leading many fans to suggest that the Mac version of Torchlight 2 has been canned.
Fortunately, a representative from Runic Games recently offered this statement:
The official word as of right now is that we encountered unexpected complexities in porting Torchlight 2 to the Mac, simultaneous with our scramble to ramp up on our next project and get it moving forward. The Mac platform still poses some challenges for us as a company (as anyone who waited for the Mac port of Torchlight 1 can attest). As a result, while we are still pursuing it, we don't have a date or any real details to share on the Mac port of Torchlight 2 just yet. When we do have something to share, though, we'll do so as quickly as possible.
So while the good news is that Runic Games have not given up yet on porting Torchlight 2 to the Mac, the bad news is that we are still not any clearer on when the Mac version will drop. Fans of Torchlight on the Mac platform can only keep their fingers crossed and hope for the best.
