Runic Games' dungeon crawler hits new sales milestone across Xbox 360, Mac, and PC; sequel slated for arrival this September or October.


Runic Games' Diablo-esque dungeon crawler Torchlight was released on the PC in October 2009 and earned a strong critical reception. Today, its developer made known just how commercially successful the game has been, announcing that Torchlight has gone platinum.

Runic Games sent word today that Torchlight has sold over 1 million units across all platforms, which includes the Xbox 360, PC, and Mac. The developer did not offer a platform breakdown of sales.

Runic Games is currently crafting a sequel to Torchlight. Torchlight II was originally expected to arrive this spring, but development of the XBLA iteration of the original (which launched in March) pushed Torchlight II's release window to this September or October.

Formed in 2008 by veterans of the now-defunct Hellgate: London outfit Flagship Studios, Runic Games includes a number of employees from Blizzard North, which created the original Diablo franchise.
