Perfect World Entertainment have announced that they are developing a new game to add to the Torchlight franchise; Torchlight Frontiers. The game is set in the same universe as the first two Torchlight games and shares the same styles, with players being able to team up with friends and devoted pets to run head-first through a vibrant world.
“Perfect World Entertainment has had a strong working relationship with Max Schaefer, dating back to the original Torchlight game, and we believe in his vision to evolve the Torchlight series,” said Yoon Im, senior vice president of publishing at Perfect World Entertainment. “Max has put together an all-star team of developers, and we continue to be amazed by the sheer level of talent and wealth of experience that they bring to Torchlight Frontiers. We’re proud to have Echtra Games as a part of the company.”
“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,” said Max Schaefer, CEO of Echtra Games. “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.”
Torchlight Frontiers will be available on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Additional details about Torchlight Frontiers will be revealed at a later date.
