'Torchlight II' pushed back to July

Runic Games has revealed a short delay for Torchlight II.

CEO Max Schaefer told DS that work on the Xbox Live version of Torchlight has moved the game beyond its scheduled May or June release period.

"I'd say that the Xbox project, having to do the extra work with the interface, has pushed us back a little bit, so we're probably talking July right now for Torchlight II," he explained.

"It's going great, however. We've actually got some optimisations and technical improvements that went into making the Xbox version that we've been able to go back and implement into Torchlight II for PC.

"We've got load times down, we've got some animation stuff that's a little bit better, and it's feeling really good right now."

He added: "Torchlight II is playing really snappy and really sharp, so I'm very excited about that."

Runic Games will release the original Torchlight for Xbox Live Arcade on March 9.
