Does the real money auction house and number of other issues revolving around Diablo 3 make you cringe for a simpler but equally enjoyable dungeon crawling experience? Well hopefully by the end of the Summer this year you will have a new alternative because Runic Games’ Torchlight 2 is still planned for a release sometime this summer.
Speaking with Joystiq, Runic president Travis Baldree has stated: “The end of summer is September 25th or something like that, right? We’re still trying to get it done for summer. It’s a big game and we’ve still got some polish to go.” So with summer already a month in, this gives Runic a little over two months to release the game and save gamers from Diablo 3 hell.
