'Wasteland 3' (ALL) Gets Delayed A Few Months

by Rainier on March 31, 2020 @ 1:31 p.m. PDT

Wasteland 3 is a party-based role-playing game with an emphasis on deep reactivity, replayability, and strategic combat.

The RPG series that pioneered the postapocalyptic genre in video games returns with Wasteland 3!

Following the critically acclaimed release of 2014 Game of the Year winner Wasteland 2, Wasteland 3 takes players from the radioactive heat of the American Southwest to the perpetual nuclear winter of Colorado.

Originally planned for launch on May 19, 2020, InXile has decided to delayed Wasteland 3's launch until August 28, 2020.

"Greetings all,

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 the 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 month into ensuring that on launch day Wasteland 3 is the experience you've been waiting for.

Thank you and stay safe,

Brian Fargo

Studio Head, inXile Entertainment"
