Wasteland 2 raises over $3 million

All steam ahead for October 2013 release

Interplay and inXile founder Brian Fargo raised over $3 million to fund development of Wasteland 2, a sequel to the fondly remembered 1988 RPG which paved the way for the now legendary Fallout series.


The game quickly raised its initial target of $900,000 through Kickstarter, with the drive going on to bring in $2,933,197 thanks to 61,289 backers. A further $110,208 was pledged through PayPal.

By clearing the $2.1m mark, Fargo was able to enlist Fallout: New Vegas developer Obsidian to collaborate on the project.

Wasteland 2 is scheduled for release in October 2013.
