Hey everyone,

It’s been over nine years since a rag-tag team of 17 developers helped open Runic Games. We’ve been so lucky for the community that has supported us and made us successful. Thanks to that support, we have had the chance to meet and work with the best people in the world. Our team here at Runic has released three successful games, and over that time we have seen many changes; team members got married, kids were born, but the most important thing is that we have become a family.

I’m sorry to say that today will be Runic’s last day open. Our focus is on our family here, and helping them find a new place to call home. If you are in games and looking for some of the best talent in the industry, please email [email protected]

For those that love the Torchlight series, there will be some news coming. And for all our fans, our community and multiplayer services will keep running even after the studio's lights go off.

It has been an amazing experience. To my family here at Runic, I know we won’t be far from each other, and I’ll miss seeing you all every week.

You haven’t heard the last of us,

Marsh Lefler
Studio Head

Torchlight was a pretty good game.  I never got super deep into it... I know Civenge hammered it hard.

Wow that is a bummer.  I played Torchlight 1 and 2 quite a bit.  Maybe their new game Hob didn't do good?  Whatever the case I wish them well.

I liked Torchlight 1 and 2 (still playing 2).  I think it's more about PWE perhaps.  It's a strange IP for them to keep when their focus is MMOs/microtransactions.  Maybe they couldn't get anyone to buy the IP.  Not tried Hob but it looked interesting.
