Torchlight Frontiers, new game in development?
I did a search in the United States Patent and Trademark Office database, and it revealed that a trademark "Torchlight Frontiers" was filed April 17, 2018 by Runic Games:
This seems a little strange as the company has closed down. But we do have the little hint left by Marsh Lefler in the closing down announcement: "For those that love the Torchlight series, there will be some news coming."
According to a job posting from november 2017 for Echtra Games (Max Schaefer's new company), they’re "building a big world based on a beloved gaming franchise"
A lot of the old Diablo II team is back with Max at Echtra, so I'm guessing it isn't that unlikely that they would be making another ARPG style game. And I'm hoping they are the ones making Torchlight Frontiers.
But will it be another classic ARPG, or maybe some kind of MMO? Either way, a newly registered trademark confirms that we can expect another Torchlight game in the future, and that is definitely good news.
Anyone else have some thoughts on this?
