VG 247 - Info on Torchlight Frontiers:
https://www.vg247.com/2018/08/09/torchlight-frontiers-action-rpg-shared-world-announced/

Echtra Games will be working on this Torchlight Frontiers game.
Echtra is comprised of numerous ex-Runic dev's [such as Max Shaefer (from Blizzard's Diablo 1+2 fame)] that worked on Torchlight 1 & 2.
Torchlight Frontiers is going to be a "shared-world" ARPG - so it'll likely be online-only / MMO.

https://www.destructoid.com/torchlight-frontiers-is-now-torchlight-iii-and-it-s-no-longer-free-to-play-or-an-mmo-579039.phtml

Notes:
- Torchlight: Frontiers has been renamed to Torchlight III
- Torchlight III's leveling system is scrapped (based on gear & item stats)
- Torchlight III will bring back its leveling system, similar in style to Torchlight II.
- Torchlight III is no longer free-to-play
- Torchlight III is now a "premium" game with a cost to purchase (like previous Torchlight titles).
- Torchlight III drops the MMO & open-world aspect.
- TL3 is now being changed to a linear-style game with Acts, like previous Torchlight games.
- Torchlight III is now has modes for offline or optional online...just like Torchlight II.
- Only shared zones and social spaces, when you're online, are towns
- When online, combat zones are mostly private for combat zones in dungeons & other combat zones.
- TL3 is set for Steam for release maybe this Summer...with console versions possibly coming later

Well, it's finally on Steam so it will get the exposure it needs and rightly deserves.

Got access to the Torchlight III Alpha since I was already registered on Arc Games so I'll give it a whirl but it is in its early stages after the official transition from Frontiers.
