Deep Silver to handle distribution while inXile focuses on development.
InXile Entertainment’s sequel to the classic Wasteland won’t just be available online – the developer recently announced that it has struck a deal Deep Silver to distribute Wasteland 2 in North America, with a European retail date also planned. Funded by Kickstarter, Wasteland 2 will also receive assistance from Deep Silver for QA testing of international versions of the game, most especially the PAL release.
CEO inXile Entertainment Brian Fargo stated that, “This is a perfect opportunity for inXile: it allows us to continue to focus all of our energy and money into the creative aspects of the game while letting Deep Silver take our game outside of the pure digital space.
“This has the added bonus of allowing us to spend more of the Kickstarter funds on development while continue to retain all ownership and control. I’ve known the people at Deep Silver for many years and they have always been a first rate organisation to deal with.”
Currently, inXile is also developing Torment: Tides of Numenara, another popular Kickstarter-funded game which will be the spiritual successor to Planescape: Torment.
