    Already sounds better than making open world action RPG or VR MMO in inXile.

    (Makes me wonder who took the lead on Wasteland 3. David Rogers? BrotherNone...?)

    I think Ziets finished his work and moved on right away. Like he did for PoE. He's not a guy to linger, as far as I can tell.

    I don't think he was replaced.

    People who have been interviewed about Wasteland 3 in recent months other than Brian Fargo - Tim Campbell (game director), Jeremy Kopman (lead area designer), Thomas Beekers (senior narrative designer). At this stage in development they could probably fill lead designer tasks.

    Oh lol:

    If G Ziets isn’t a big fan of The Smiths/Morrissey, that haircut is just wasted.

    I hope WotC gives him Spelljammer.

    I'm super exited for his new RPG.

    He said something what has never been seen in RPGs before? What it that ?

    Lead designers need to be around until content is frozen, and I doubt that's the case here, it's too early.

    So Brother None is now the senior narrative designer? That's quite a career.

    Why do we hate him again?

    AFAIR he blacklisted the Codex, cancelled an already arranged interview, and funnily enough threw Infinitron under the bus (blamed the leak on Infinitron and punished the Codex because of that). The real blame was on TechLand, but inXile went with Beeker's version of events. We then remembered how he was Zyklon Beekers on NMA forums, saying how he'd gas the jews again if it ever came to that (or something to that effect), saying nigger this nigger that, etc, but unfortunately that never went anywhere. Beekers humiliated the Codex and escaped justice.

    IIRC Ziets has lived in Ohio for a while. He was working remotely on Wasteland 3. Source: He told me when I met him at GDEX last year.
