Just an hour ago, Brian Fargo hinted at something big being announced later today. I suppose now is later today.
Here's the news from Rock Paper Shotgun:
Holy moley. The counter on Wasteland 2's Kickstarter page is currently at 1 655 282$. That means we need to raise an additional 0.45 million dollars within 17 days for this to happen.
This is what Fargo and Avellone had to say:
Brian Fargo observes that “I have a history with the guys at Obsidian that dates back to the days of Interplay’s Black Isle studios. 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.”
UPDATE. An important clarification from Brian Fargo via email -- Obsidian will only help design the game, all the coding will be done in-house at InXile:
Brian FargoAlso important to note that their contribution is purely in design. We are doing all the code here.
Interesting times indeed.
