Yesterday, Choplifter developer inXile Entertainment announced that the final version of Wasteland 2, the much-anticipated sequel of the cult classic and Fallout spiritual predecessor Wasteland, will be released on Steam and other digital distribution stores on September 19.
For those not in the know, Wasteland 2 was successfully funded through a Kickstarter campaign back in 2012 that collected the whooping amount of US$2.9 million. The game debuted publicly at the beginning of this year as part of Steam’s Early Access program, where it has been constantly improved and expanded with feedback and suggestions from interested gamers.
The announcement came from inXile head Brian Fargo, who spread the good news through his Twitter account. The date falls a few weeks after the original release date the studio had planned, but inside the margin originally presented when the Kickstarter campaign kicked off. As usual, those who bought the Early Access version of the game will receive immediate access to the final version as soon as it’s made available.
