    And there I was, hoping on a Yu-Gi-Oh / Wasteland crossover game.

    So it looks like EA is still holding at least some of the rights the old game...

    I think this is more a case of Wasteland made and produced by EA is still EA's property (and can't be sold by inexile), however they can continue to make a Wasteland 2 without any repercussions or limits from EA. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

    I'm sorry, but just take my $50 already ! I hope there is no limit on that tier. Been dying to get a proper boxed set that does not cost 100$ and include a bust of the character.

    Is really worth to call it Wasteland 2, with all the EA strings attached? Why not just do the same the guys did when creating the original Fallout, and create a new post-apocalyptic setting...

    The guys who did the original Fallout wanted to do a Wasteland sequel/follow-up as well.

    Is it worth it? Yes. It makes the odds of this succeeding much larger.

    Double Fine only needed to say we are gonna do a old-school point & click adventure, they didn't need to say "Day of the Tentacle 2" and bend knee to Lucasarts. The whole point of crowsourcing projects like this is getting rid of publishers to be able to do old-school games without interference. What's the point in crowsourcing a EA project?

    It's not an EA project, InXile owns the full rights to Wasteland, lock, stock and crate.
