Studio head Brian Fargo provides update on the game’s current progress.
InXile Entertainment’s Wasteland 2, a sequel to the much-loved classic RPG and one of the most successful Kickstarter projects of all time, will be available in August end for consumers.
This was confirmed by creator and studio head Brian Fargo on the game’s Kickstarter page. “We are very happy to announce the ship date for Wasteland 2: the game will be coming to you at the end of August of this year. It’s exciting to be in this home stretch, and all your support and feedback throughout the process has made the game much better than it would have been otherwise.
Fargo also updated backers on the current status of the game which is “feature complete”. “We also just released another big update to the Wasteland 2 beta. This update adds the final major area of Arizona, meaning the Wasteland 2 beta now includes all Arizona maps, which is approximately half the entire game. At this stage we’re internally feature complete, but not feature locked.
“What that means is that every feature is in our dev builds but we’re still testing functionality, gameplay balance impact and even quality. If a feature is not good enough, we’ll cut it, but if fan feedback and internal review indicates it’s vital, we’ll double down on it. But the main focus for the new few months lies with balancing, optimizing and of course mercilessly hunting down bugs.”
Wasteland 2 will release for PC, Mac and Linux. Stay tuned for more details.
