Wasteland 3 for Linux (and Mac) delayed, possible by end of 2020

By - | Views: 16,608

inXile entertainment today put out a fresh update to go over Wasteland 3 details and they've decided to delay the Linux and Mac versions.

After a successful Fig crowdfunding campaign in 2016, it saw inXile manage to pull in over three million dollars although over two million of that was monies from Fig directly. Since then, Microsoft swooped in and acquired inXile (and
Obsidian Entertainment) as part of Xbox Game Studios back in 2018.

The actual release date for Wasteland 3 was only put down recently as August 28, today though that changes for Linux and Mac. In the update post they said they made the "difficult decision" to focus currently on just Windows 10, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. However, they will be "prioritizing" the work needed for Linux and Mac "post-launch" and they expect it to be finished "by the end of the year". Delays are never fun but if this means they truly dedicate some resources to it, therefore ensuring it results in "a better overall product for Mac and Linux" then hopefully it will be a good quality port.

With that in mind, they seem to be going about this in quite a sensible way and mentioned that they're offering refunds beyond the normal cut-offs but you need to do so before keys/physical rewards have shipped. So if you can't wait, you should act on a refund now.

You can wishlist/follow or whatever else on GOG and Steam. Latest trailer available below:

I had been really close to get a nice level on their kickstarter. It looks like "wait and see if they actually deliver" was the correct option here...

What propaganda?

Meh, when InXile was bought by Microsoft I resigned any intent to purchase from them ever again. Maybe I'm an extremist, but after their compelling speech and then doing the total opposite a few years later, I lost all respect for them. I have all their games minus this one... and all future titles.

Good question.
I'm usually very aware of publisher's wokeness for virtue currency and avoid a product if it is too preachy, but in this trailer I just don't see anything.

But for some people a female narrator, dyed hair (even if that was always a Wasteland thing) and the word "patriarchy" (for what is very literally a patriarchy in the game, one of the factions, which you can even join!) is enough to get triggered.
