Torchlight 2 cracks 2 million milestone

In case you were wondering just how popular Torchlight 2 really is, let me tell you: Plenty popular. The game has sold more than two million units in less than 12 months, says Runic Games, making it considerably more popular than the original.

Runic president Travis Baldree is super-pleased:

I’d just like to say a big thank you to all the players who offered their suggestions on what we could improve, and who stuck with us and supported us during development. It wouldn’t have been possible without you, and we’re humbled and grateful at your response.

The comparison is startling:
The first Torchlight sold one million units within two years of being on the market.

Torchlight 2 took just over three months to reach the same milestone after its release last September. It’s now been available for ten months, and has all-but doubled its predecessor’s lifetime sales.

On one hand, it’s an awesome game – on the other, Steam sales may have helped it over the line somewhat. Torchlight 2 dropped to just $5 last week.
