Wasteland 3 official artwork without logo

The post-apocalyptic RPG Wasteland 3 was originally slated to arrive this May 19th, but sadly that is no longer going to be the case. Instead, due to the pandemic forcing the team to adjust to working from home, Wasteland 3's release date has been pushed back until August 28th.

"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, reads the brief developer update. "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. 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."

While the delay is regrettable, especially since I was quite excited to dive into Wasteland 3 after seeing how fun the beta was, it's also more than understandable given the circumstances. On a similar note, while there hasn't been much talk about it just yet, I wouldn't be surprised if we end up getting quite a few these news updates over the next few months. After all, creating games is hard enough when everyone is on the same page, let alone when everyone is scattered all over the country!

Should anything change for Wasteland 3, I'll make sure to let you know. Until then, you can learn a little bit more about it over at the official website.
