The crowdfunded Wasteland 3 video game developed by inXile was in radio silence for a long time. They finally broke it recently to reveal that there will be a major update on the game at E3. Another delightful addition of info was that the game won’t have any sort of online store exclusivity.
Could we also expect a Wasteland 3 trailer at E3? It’s hard to say, but here’s inXile’s take on it:
It’s been a while since our last update, and that’s because we’ve been hard at work on Wasteland 3, and getting a lot of the core pieces of the game in place. As we’ve said before, the game is effectively playable from start to finish—but there’s still a megaton of work left to go. Sure, you can complete quests and navigate most of the areas, but this is the most time-intensive stretch of the project. We have the bones—the skeleton is there—but it’s filling it with all the sinew, cartilage, and guts that really make the Wasteland experience what it is. Things are really shaping up, but the most critical work is just getting started. We’ve been hiring and growing the company, as well as putting a lot of the new Microsoft development resources to good use, and that’s going to help us be able to make Wasteland 3 even bigger and better.
We’ll have development updates to share during E3, so look forward to our next update with more specifics then. Thank you for your patience as we continue development and work toward more consistent backer updates. To restate it again: we’re committed to our backer promises, and you can expect the Steam and GOG versions of the game on launch day. No store exclusivity.
We’re looking forward to sharing more with you during E3!
As they said above, there’s still a Megaton of work left to do. That means we shouldn’t expect a very close release date, however, the Wasteland 3 info at E3 2019 should hopefully clarify any questions we still have in mind.
You can be sure that developers are finally seeing through the Epic Store exclusivity scandal.
