Wasteland 2 likely delayed until September

"Due to fulfilment of the physical goods and discs"

The Wasteland 2 release date is expected to be delayed from August until September.

inExile said in an update on the game's Kickstarter page: "It's pretty likely that we will slip into the first or second week in September due to fulfilment of the physical goods and discs. We will give an exact date as soon as we know it."


Wasteland 2 was originally scheduled to be released in October 2013, but was delayed last July due to its growing scope.

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 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 $2.1 million mark, Fargo was able to enlist Fallout: New Vegas studio Obsidian to collaborate on the project.

Wasteland 2 will be available on PC, Mac and Linux, and will include the original Wasteland.
