Deep Silver and developer InXile Entertainment have regrettably announced that the release of Wasteland 3 has been delayed. This is because of the development team has had to work from home due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, and has struggled with this transition. As a result, the game, which was originally scheduled for release in May for PS4, XB1, and PC, has a new release date: August 28th, 2020.
Below, you can read the full statement from InXile's own Brian Fargo. We here at RPGFan, for what it's worth, wish him and his team nothing but the best of health and safety during this time.
As with most companies, we moved to a work-from-home environment some weeks ago, and that's of course introduced new challenges that many of us throughout the world have been learning to manage. We've been excited to see the Wasteland 3 beta so well received, but the reality is that with these new logistical challenges our release was going to be impacted.
We're in a great position with both Microsoft and Deep Silver supporting our desire to ensure the game launches in the best possible circumstances, and to add a few extra months to ensure this is a stellar product on day one. With that, Wasteland 3's new release date is August 28, 2020.
That's time we're putting into acting on beta feedback and suggestions, optimization, polishing and refinements, and making sure we have an awesome co-op experience. We're pouring our hearts into this game, and the last thing we want is to have anything but an amazing launch for a product we truly believe in.
We appreciate everyone's excitement and continued support as we put a few more months into ensuring that on launch day Wasteland 3 is the experience you've been waiting for.
Thank you and stay safe,
Studio Head, inXile Entertainment
