Torchlight 2 surpassed two million sales over the weekend, doubling its trade over the course of 2013. As developer Runic announced on New Year's Eve, the follow-up took three months to hit the million mark, which the first Torchlight reached in two years. In the seven months since Torchlight 2 sold another million, news that delighted Runic CEO Max Schaefer.
"We are overwhelmed by the reception for Torchlight 2," said Schaefer. "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."
We gave Torchlight 2 four-and-a-half-stars in our review last year, saying "fans of the original will be overjoyed to find most of what they loved is still here, with lots more of it."
