Torchlight Heading To Xbox Live
Did I miss something here? Torchlight is a hit PC game coming to Xbox Live, and it’s announced basically as a footnote in a press release right after Microsoft had a 1.5-hour keynote address? Really?
But yeah, Torchlight is coming to Xbox Live, which isn’t strictly a surprise considering Runic has said they wanted to put it on Xbox Live (even through they’re already working on Torchlight II), but there hasn’t been any talk of that in about five months. But yeah, here it is. It’ll be out in February or March as part of this year’s Xbox Live House Party.
The House Party, which they did last year as well, is five weeks in which they put out and really promote a big game every week starting February 16. The first game is Hard Corps: Uprising from Konami, a new old school Hard Corps game, and followed by, in some unknown order, Full House Poker (also on Windows Phone 7), Beyond Good and Evil (yes, it’s the real thing), Bejeweled Blitz Live (weird, since Bejeweled 3 is out on PC) and, yes, Torchlight. The release I got about this did not say what order they’d be coming in aside from that Hard Corps: Uprising is first, so we’ll have to wait for a date.
One last note: Runic also said back in August they want to put Torchlight out on PSN, too, so you can probably expect word on that soon.
