Publisher Deep Silver and developer inXile Entertainment have delayed Wasteland 3 from its previously planned May 19 release date to August 28, the companies announced. It will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
In a message, inXile Entertainment studio head Brian Fargo cited “logistical challenges” that came about from transitioning to a work-from-home environment due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic as reason for the delay.
Get the full message below.
As with most companies, we moved to a work-from-home environment some weeks ago, and that’s of course introduced new challenges that many of us throughout the world have been learning to manage. We’ve been excited to see the Wasteland 3 beta so well received, but the reality is that with these new logistical challenges our release was going to be impacted.
We’re in a great position with both Microsoft and Deep Silver supporting our desire to ensure the game launches in the best possible circumstances, and to add a few extra months to ensure this is a stellar product on day one. With that, Wasteland 3‘s new release date is August 28, 2020.
That’s time we’re putting into acting on beta feedback and suggestions, optimization, polishing and refinements, and making sure we have an awesome co-op experience. We’re pouring our hearts into this game, and the last thing we want is to have anything but an amazing launch for a product we truly believe in.
We appreciate everyone’s excitement and continued support as we put a few more months into ensuring that on launch day Wasteland 3 is the experience you’ve been waiting for.
Thank you and stay safe,
Studio Head, inXile Entertainment
