InXile Entertainment recently announced that Wasteland 2, the sequel to the 1988 classic role-playing game, is coming to the Nintendo Switch this August as Wasteland 2: Director's Cut.
Wasteland 2 started as a Kickstarter project in 2012. The campaign was championed by Interplay's founder, Brian Fargo, who is known as one of the people behind the original Fallout. The Kickstarter project raised more than $2.9 million, and after undergoing multiple delays, Wasteland 2 was released for the PC in 2014. In 2015, a Director's Cut version was launched as a free upgrade to all existing owners of the game on the PC and was ported to consoles.
Now, the Director's Cut of Wasteland 2 that is scheduled to release on the Switch will include the original game, a few tweaks in character creation, and some re-worked voice over. The studio did not disclose on whether the game will support the Switch's touchscreen or any other exclusive feature.
Currently, InXile is in the process of developing Wasteland 3, which was funded via the Fig equity crowdfunding platform. The campaign was able to raise $2.25 million during its run back in 2016 and backers will share in the game's profits if it proves to be a commercial success.
