Wasteland 2 Delayed to “Get it Right”
If you were highly anticipating to get your hands on inXile’s Wasteland 2 this October, you are going to have to be a little more patient. According to their Kickstarter page, Wasteland 2 producer Brian Fargo has announced that the game is six weeks behind schedule and that a “feature complete” version of the game will be ready within the next month. Instead of releasing the game in October, beta testing will begin and, depending on user feedback and the state of the game, a new realease date will be announced.
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.
Despite the delay, Fargo seemed confident on how Wasteland 2 is shaping up and this delay will surely be for the best. It’s nice to see developers being very transparent regarding their projects and quickly getting the news out to fans. Whilst the delay is a shame, if the game lives up to it’s expectations, it will be surely worth it.
