Newest Torchlight Game: Torchlight Frontiers announced for 2019

A brand new Torchlight is in the works, despite original developer Runic Games shutting down last year. Today Perfect World Entertainment have announced Torchlight Frontiers, coming to Xbox One, PS4 and PC in 2019.

The game is being developed by Echtra Games, a studio founded by Max Schaefer – one of the original founders of Blizzard North. Echtra Games is made up of industry veterans from Runic Studios and Blizzard.

The game is described as “combining the heart of the Torchlight series with a shared persistent and dynamically generated world”. It sounds a lot like Torchlight Frontiers will lean closer towards an MMO style ARPG.

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.

No word yet on pricing or an exact date just yet, but we wouldn’t be surprised if the game ended up being a F2P title based on publisher Perfect World Entertainment’s track record.
