Obsidian on board if Wasteland 2 Kickstarter hits $2.1M
Should the Wasteland 2 Kickstarter reach $2.1 million within the next 17 days remaining, Obisidian Entertainment along with the firm’s Chris Avellone will lend a hand with development.
Per RPS: “Wasteland is one of my favorite RPGs of all time, and when Brian asked if I wanted to work on the sequel, I jumped at the chance,” said Avellone. “While I’ve worked on Fallout 2 and Fallout: New Vegas, getting the chance to work on the spiritual successor to the Fallout franchise is a honor.”
“I have a history with the guys at Obsidian that dates back to the days of Interplay’s Black Isle studios,” offered inXile’s Brian Fargo. “Together we created some of the greatest RPG’s of all time, from Fallout 1 & 2 to titles like Icewind Dale and Planescape: Torment. It is great that we now have a chance to reunite on a project like Wasteland 2.”
Fargo said earlier this week that nothing would make him happier than to work with his fellow developers from Black Isle Studios again. Looks like it may just happen.
