Following in the footsteps of their comrades from Obsidian, Brian Fargo and his faithful underling Thomas "Brother None" Beekers recently visited London, where they too were interviewed by Wired UK's Guy Cocker. As before, much of the interview is dedicated to general gaming industry gossip, with only about 13 minutes (from around 16:45 to 30:05) of actual Wasteland 2 discussion.
There's not much new information about the game itself in those 15 minutes, but Brian does reveal that the game's final Early Access update is due to release this week. He also reveals that the game's release might be delayed until September, due to physical distribution-related reasons. Tsk tsk.
To me, though, the most enjoyable part of the interview was listening to Brian and Thomas geek out about a bunch of post-apocalyptic movies. Did you know that Interplay nearly secured the rights to develop the Mad Max 4 video game back in the 90s? Not that it would have ever actually been made, of course.
