inXile entertainment has confirmed that Wasteland 2 will officially launch on September 19th for $40. The game was the result of one of the more prominent Kickstarter campaigns, as Brian Fargo and the team at inXile did quite well back in 2012. Since that time Fargo has used some of his own money to grow the scope of the game and the game’s Early Access sales also allowed for a bigger budget. If you’re like me and have been waiting for the final product before dropping any money on the game, the time is drawing closer and it looks like it will be worth the wait.

Newport Beach, California – August 21, 2014 – inXile entertainment is happy to announce the release date for its crowd funded post-apocalyptic cRPG Wasteland 2: it will be coming to digital and physical retailers September 19th!

Wasteland 2 was crowd funded on Kickstarter in early 2012 and has been in development since. The game’s scope has only grown as CEO Brian Fargo put up his own money and used back catalogue and Early Access sales to double the initial budget to over $5 million.

“After more than 25 years, it is so exciting to finally deliver this game to our audience,” says Mr. Fargo. “The project is so much bigger than originally planned but we wanted to over deliver with a massive game to show how wonderful crowd funding can be. Early response has been strong, we’re excited to get this final game out into the world.”

Wasteland 2 will be available for purchase through digital retailers for $40/€40/£30.
