Torchlight Frontiers confirmed by Perfect World, Echtra Games


Time to head back to the world of Torchlight.

Torchlight Frontiers was today confirmed by developer Echtra Games and publisher Perfect World Entertainment.

Echtra Games is led by former Runic Games and Blizzard North Co-Founder, Max Schaefer, who leads a team “comprised of veteran developers who were responsible for the games that defined the ARPG genre, including the original Diablo and Torchlight franchises,” Perfect World today advised.

Set in the same universe as Torchlight and Torchlight IITorchlight Frontiers is planned for release on Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4.

“Evolving the Torchlight universe into a shared world has always been a goal for the franchise, and I’m excited that we’re finally able to make it a reality,” Schaefer said of the new title.

Torchlight Frontiers will be a living, breathing universe that will still feel uniquely Torchlight, while we add our own creative spin to the game. The team is building something truly special, and we can’t wait for fans to play it for the first time at Gamescom and PAX West.”
