Torchlight II Hits Record Sales

Runic Games, Inc. ("Runic Games"), a developer of PC and console game entertainment software in the United States, announced that over the weekend Torchlight II has surpassed two million sales.

Torchlight II launched as a digital download from Steam, Runic Games, Perfect World GamersGate, GameFly, and GameStop on September 20, 2012.

Runic Games’ CEO, Max Schaefer comments, "We are overwhelmed by the reception for Torchlight II. To hit this milestone is a testament not only to our dedicated development team, but also to the greatest, most positive gaming community I've ever seen."

Torchlight I sold over one million units within its first two years of release. Torchlight II effectively doubled that number in just ten months. Runic Games President Travis Baldree responded to the news: "I'd just like to say a big thank you to all the players who offered their suggestions on what we could improve, and who stuck with us and supported us during development. It wouldn't have been possible without you, and we're humbled and grateful at your response."
