Hey guys,

I just found this news at a german gaming homepage. Official Release was announced at a press conference for the 28. august.

Link:

Sorry, but the link is only in german.

    ... or do you already know... but good news to me. Maybe that counts just for the boxed version.

    Are german sites the first who mention this? I found those news here:

    http://www.gamestar.de/spiele/torchligh ... 69132.html

    http://www.gamona.de/games/torchlight-2 ... 23749.html

    Edit: ...Ok, I see. So thx BrianW to ~merge~ both... ;)

    loose translation:
    "update 20.06.2012
    Runic is right. The quality of Torchlight 2 is priority at all times. Daedalic and Eurovideo do not want to force Runic to any releasedate. But it does not mean that this date is impossible -on the contrary it would be thinkable that the english version will be released earlier. We even estimate a later date, maybe September"

    since today Amaon.de uses this date 2

    Well, technically raccoon, but correct. Unless it's on the main website, it's just a rumor.

    It would appear that he did. <_<

    No.

    I'm not going to fall for it. I got enough of that **** over GW2 from Gamestop's hands.

    Until I see it from a yellow, or on the Runic twitter, I'm not buying it.

    either way there can still be delays with it that far out. I'll be happy with an August release though.
    Yay, TL2!!!

    Beings it's in a press release from our German distributor, I'm going to let BrianW or Travis make some sort of official statement. The release date is news to me though.

    Indeed. Myself and my friends went in on a pre-order pack in the hopes of playing it together over Summer, and an August release date pretty well kills any chance of that happening.

    And I was hoping a June release :lol:

    A reasonable stance; thank you. Oh, and as amusing as the .sig is, I thought you'd like this possible variant:

    Hey, guys. I just wanted to jump in here and reiterate this again: if it doesn't come from us, then please take it with a grain of salt. We've seen this repeatedly from various outlets over the course of our development cycle. These are third parties who are making guesses. It's nothing more than that. When we announce a release date, you'll know. ;)

    So the statement it's a press release from you and youe publisher is just utterly wrong? Like are those guesses from the magazines or from Daedalic?

    It's always so weird, why would a partner disclose such information and not the developer himself.

    Will German stores ship the boxes outside Germany?

    If you pay for shipping I guess so yeah. If not I'll send you one for let's say 40 bucks - shipping not included ofc! :P But I think Amazon should be shipping abroad.

    It's a guess made by a magazine based on a guess made by the publisher. The publisher probably said 'Eh, areound the end of August, maybe, maybe around the twenty-eightish, something like that' and the magazine reported it as being some arbitrary date they pulled out of their ****, more then likely. It's all about drumming up interest/webhits. Like Brian said, unless they announce it themselves,
