It was announced today that Wasteland 2 will finally be released in August 2014. The game has been purchasable and playable since December 13 via Steam early access. Developer inXile entertainment has also released the entire Arizona portion of the game via the early access beta on Steam.
“It’s exciting to be in the home stretch on a game I’ve been wanting to get to for the last two decades. The feedback from our backers on the early beta has been great and I’m proud of the way Wasteland 2 is shaping up. The scope of the game is immense with a word count that is greater than The Lord of the Rings novels and a solid 50 hour+ game experience that has diversity from beginning to end. My goal has been to over deliver on our backer’s expectations for Wasteland 2,” said Brian Fargo of inXile Entertainment.
No specific release date has been announced, although “late August” narrows it down quite a bit.
