In a Kickstarter update, a developer of inXile Entertainment announced that Wasteland 2, which was being expected to be released this October, is a bit behind schedule. The final product can be pushed back for six weeks.
According to producer, Brian Fargo, “This feature complete playable is about six weeks behind where I had wanted it to be but I can’t be too surprised considering the increased scope. We have been able to accomplish so much in so little time by our experience, fantastic team and tools. Once the beta testing begins in October and once we have enough feedback from testing, we can evaluate where we’re at and set a new release date. By that stage, over ten thousand of our backers will have gotten to play the game with us. In the end, quality comes before everything and fortunately the backers have been in line with us to make sure we get it right.
One of the unique aspects to our crowd funding campaign is that we greatly overfunded which is wonderful in allowing us to create a larger experience, one that is in fact quite epic in size. It could well be the largest RPG I have worked on to date.”
Meanwhile, the super rad concept art of the Centron Deluxe Model has been released.
