Congratulations are in order, for probably one of my favorite developers today, Runic Games has announced that TORCHLIGHT has officially sold over one million units across all platforms (PC , Mac, and Xbox Live Arcade).
The announcement comes after closing a successful 4th of July holiday sale on Steam, which kicked-off a Deal of the Week promotion on Xbox. This sale also coincides with the simultaneous Xbox unlock of a new spell (spoiler: bees) by the Xbox community.
“We’re very excited to share Torchlight’s success with our fans and supporters. It’s been a great ride so far and we can’t wait to give everyone more of what they want in Torchlight II,” said President Travis Baldree. “It isn’t every day you sell a million games. We’re grateful to be here.”
Torchlight debuted in October 2009 for PC, and premiered on Xbox on March 9th 2011. Runic Games is currently developing the PC-based multi-player sequel, Torchlight II, which was nominated for six awards at E3 2011, including Best RPG and Best of E3.
