 Torchlight  Sells 1M Copies Across All Platforms
Torchlight Sells 1M Copies Across All Platforms
July 6, 2011 | By Kyle Orland




Runic Games' dungeon crawling RPG Torchlight has sold over 1 million copies across its PC, Mac and Xbox 360 versions, the developer announced today.

The milestone comes after a fourth of July Steam sale and an Xbox 360 Deal of the Week promotion helped drive continued sales of the title, which was launched at a price of just $20 back in October of 2009.

Torchlight sold its first 500,000 copies just over six months after that PC release, and just before the launch of a Mac port. The XBLA version of the game, released in March, led to the "highest sales day ever" for any version the title, Runic said.

"We're very excited to share Torchlight’s success with our fans and supporters," said Runic president Travis Baldree in a statement. "It's been a great ride so far and we can’t wait to give everyone more of what they want in Torchlight II. It isn’t every day you sell a million games. We’re grateful to be here."

Last August, the company announced a Torchlight sequel planned for a Spring release, but later said the XBLA port for the original title delayed the sequel's planned release to July.

Runic formed in the summer of 2008 from the ashes of Mythos and Hellgate: London developer Flagship Studios.
