Torchlight 2 Mac development hits snags, release not imminent
The Macintosh port of Runic's dungeon crawler game Torchlight 2 has hit some snags. Responding to a query by gaming website Kotaku, the company states that "we encountered unexpected complexities in porting Torchlight 2 to the Mac, simultaneous with our scramble to ramp up on our next project and get it moving forward. The Mac platform still poses some challenges for us as a company (as anyone who waited for the Mac port of Torchlight can attest). As a result, while we are still pursuing it, we don't have a date or any real details to share on the Mac port of Torchlight 2 just yet. When we do have something to share, though, we'll do so as quickly as possible." The PC version of Torchlight 2 shipped on September 20, 2012.
