The Torchlight games are a series of games which are focused on making a more modern take on the dungeon crawler, loot gathering experience which was made popular by Diablo and is made by  Max Schaefer and Erich Schaefer, who worked heavily on the Diablo franchise, along with Travis Baldree.
 
The original game was released in 2009, and was said to be a "Test and funding" model for the mentioned MMO game. However, in 2010 they confirmed the creation of Torchlight 2. Despite there being fears of this being a replacement for the MMO , in a press release, Runic Games’ CEO Max Schaefer assured fans that a planned Torchlight MMO is still in the works. “We are still going to make the MMO,” he said, “but it became apparent that Torchlight II was the logical next step for us given the phenomenal enthusiasm of gamers petitioning us for multiplayer.”
