With fans having to wait more than 25 years since Electronic Arts and Interplay Productions' original release of post-apocalyptic title Wasteland, inXile Entertainment's Kickstarter-fuelled sequel Wasteland 2 will officially be releasing on Steam come September 19th.
Game director Brian Fargo announced the news on Twitter today
, noting that the "20+ year wait is soon over." Wasteland 2 was crowdfunded primarily through Kickstarter, where InXile's campaign raised more than $2.9 million in pledges from backers in 2012. The developer released an Early Access version of the game on Steam last December for Windows PC, following that up with Mac and Linux versions.
Plans to release the game officially in August were pushed back to September, due to the team needing to fulfill physical rewards for Kickstarter backers. For more on Wasteland 2, read AusGamers' interview with inXile's Chris Avellone
