After a wait of twenty-six years since the first Wasteland game, inXile Entertainment and Deep Silver can now proudly announce that the sequel will be officially released on September 19 this year.
The Director of the original Wasteland game all the way back in 1988 – Brian Fargo – confirmed the date on his Twitter account last night:
Official Wasteland 2 release date… September 19th! The 20+ year wait is soon over.

Back in August, Fargo was at the London Comic-Con to preview the game and show footage to attendees, as well as those watching the livestream. The original Wasteland was the spiritual fore-runner to the popular Fallout series, and despite several failed attempts at sequels and revivals, Wasteland 2 will be the first proper follow-up to this genre-shaping title.
