Torchlight sells 1 MILLION units across all platforms
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.
