Only announced at the end of September, inXile Entertainment’s current project, Wasteland 3 has stormed through its crowdfunding goal of $2.75m to become fully funded in just a matter of 3 days.
The sequel to Wasteland 2 began life on crowdfunding website Fig on October 5th but made short work of its hefty campaign launched on October 5, 2016, passing the goal of 2.75M USD. There is still time for fans to back Wasteland 3 as the campaign is not due to end until November 3, 2016.
“Wasteland 3 represents the most ambitious title that we have crowdfunded so far,” said Brian Fargo, CEO of inXile Entertainment. “We wouldn’t be here without our fans and backers carrying the torch and we want to continue to repay them by making the best role-playing games possible. With Wasteland 3 we aim to over-deliver like never before.”
Wasteland 3 begins shortly after the end of Wasteland, with the player starting the game as the sole survivor of Team November, a Ranger squad dispatched to the icy Colorado wastes. Colorado is a land of buried secrets, lost technology, fearsome lunatics, and deadly factions, most of which have never heard of the Desert Rangers.
Wasteland 3 is being developed for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
