Gamers who love the hack and slash RPG genre of Diablo have most probably heard of the Torchlight franchise which basically offers a similar playstyle albeit in a different setting and universe (obviously). It has been several years since Torchlight 2 was released, but its availability for Mac has yet to come.


In fact last we heard, it was in 2012 where its developers Runic Games promised that the Mac version was only a few months away. Now we’re in 2015 but where is the Mac version? Well gamers will be pleased to finally learn that the Mac version of Torchlight 2 is ready for release. Its developers have announced via YouTube that it will be released come 2nd of February.

If you haven’t already given up on the Mac version, you will be able to get your hands on it next Monday. Runic did state in the past that they ran into some unexpected complexities, although it is safe to say that nobody had anticipated it would take over two years for them to sort it out, but we suppose better late than never, right?

Back then the developers had this to say, “The official word as of right now is that we encountered unexpected complexities in porting Torchlight 2 to the Mac, simultaneous with our scramble to ramp up on our next project and get it moving forward. The Mac platform still poses some challenges for us as a company (as anyone who waited for the Mac port of Torchlight 1 can attest).”
