Runic's sequel doubles Torchlight's two-year sales in just ten months

Runic Games

Based in Seattle WA, Runic Games was founded in August 2008 by Travis Baldree, Max Schaefer, Erich Schaefer...

Runic Games' Torchlight 2 has sold more than 2 million units since it launched in September, 2012.

Torchlight only managed to hit 1 million sales in two years, so the momentum built by the sequel represents significant progress for the developer.

"We are overwhelmed by the reception for Torchlight II," said Runic CEO Max Schaefer, who also co-founded Diablo-developer Blizzard North, in a statement. "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."

Runic president Travis Baldree was also full of praise for the Torchlight community, which has been active in shaping and improving the game since its launch.

"It wouldn't have been possible without you," he said, "and we're humbled and grateful at your response."

I wonder how much of a boost they had in numbers after the last few weeks where it was in the Steam sale for about 3?

@Dave: I think the game was already doing well before that, as it was released for a measly $20 and I believe many people snapped it up at that price. It's been on sale a few times since, but I'd say plenty of folks didn't mind a AAA quality title at 1/3 the price of one with all the features T2 has.

I've bought both of these when they were released and they were / are tremendous fun for a romp. Delighted for these guys - great relationship with their fanbase also.
