inXile's Brian Fargo said that Microsoft trusts the studio, while Tim Campbell added that Wasteland 3 will be a better game thanks to the help and resources provided by Microsoft.
Glad to hear!
It's a shame then that the E3 trailer got me dehyped af... That was a bad trailer...
I remember undead labs saying the same about state of decay 2....they even said it's a AAA game now and look how that turned out. I'm so done with dev's talking...I go by what is shown, and what was shown of wasteland 3 isnt looking to good. MS bought inXile so ofcourse they trust you....but it's not them who you should worry about trusting you..its the customer.
Having the support of other dev teams to share tech definitely sounds like a nice bonus. Hope they make some nice snow tech that they can share with the world!
Wasteland 2 was a great game, the definitive edition even more so. Go inXile! EA BAD, MICROSOFT GOOD.
Wasteland 2 was a great game, the definitive edition even more so. Go inXile! EPIC STORE BAD, MICROSOFT GOOD. That's better.
So is wasteland 3 and xbone exclusive?
No, games developed by recently acquired Xbox Studios that were announced as multiplatform before acquisition will remain multiplatform. Hence, The Outer Worlds, Psychonauts 2 & Wasteland 3 will still be available for PS4 and PC. However, I firmly believe all of Ninja Theory, InXile, Double Fines', etc. games will be for Xbox One and windows PC only going forward.
All future games will be xbox exclusives... Thats consoles (no matter what their official names and code names are), PC, mobile and project xcloud compatible devices.
Oh they are only making wasteland? Was hoping for a fantasy rpg
They have a fantasy RPG releasing on Xbox and Ps4 in August. Bards Tale 4
They also have Bards Tale 4
Seeing as Fallout was inspired by Wasteland I wonder if someday inXile will take some inspiration from what Bethesda did with Fallout and make an open world FPS RPG set in the Wasteland universe.
Nah, we dont need another Fallout clone.
Ironic since Fallout was a Wasteland clone
Fallout really has a lot of potential to be far greater than it is. The companion feature and exploration are top notch.
"another"? The Outer Worlds is the closest thing we've seen so far and it isnt out so its hard to label it as such. And given time cycle of Bethesda, Im sure players are more than interested in "clones" since we wont be playing fallout 5 for like 8 more years. I hope they stick with this style, but if microsoft wants to throw money into the franchise and have another team do a FPS fallout3 style game that would only benefit the fans.
Both where developed by Interplay the 88 version and the 97 version of fallout where both interplay as main developer so really wasteland came first but they are both interplay. inXile are listed as publishers for wasteland 88. I mean am not saying this is true, but it just looks like another case of who owns trademark for the Original Wasteland which was probably inXile so Interplay couldn't make a new wasteland so they make a similer game and called it Fallout, Which inXile now developer wasteland so gives even more credence they owned the trademark but still stands both are interplays creation so really its not a clone. Other wise Quake would be a DOOM clone which it isnt. side note Interplay got royally screwed if this is the case, They cant develop another wasteland make fallout, Bethesda licensed fallout from them, then suddenly have full rights to the fallout franchise both games they created have been taken off of them by publishers. if this is the case with Wasteland aswell ofc
MS trust us to do our thang. Well, let's hope MS keeps that up with all of the studios.
I have a feeling these contracts with Microsoft were win/win and an over the top sweet deal. There’s no way so many indies would be this happy about a buyout lol.
Guess that contradicts those who say that any studio that MS has anything to do with gets ruined
wait to see the gameplay first! as long as they can build on what wasteland 2 was and not have MS pressure them into hurrying it along then signs are good.....when the publisher/partner starts pushing as they want to see a return is when we see rubbish released
There's already gameplay out there. Wasteland 3 was in development long before MS purchased them.
yeah but things can always change with pressure etc, i mean wait to see the final gameplay on release
Looks like those who disagree are the ones that my comment is aimed at
Was really hoping inexile was making a fantasy action rpg other than the in the works bards tale or something like that, do they have multiple teams?
Take heed people...the deal is already done...they didn't have to say this at all...but they did. This is a multiplatform game, yet Microsoft is still supporting them as if it's for their own ecosystem only.
Dude come on there just trying to bulster gamepass thats why they bought u guys 😂
What's wrong with that?
that's pretty much why they acquired all the new studios which is amazing news for subscribers of he service. matt booty even said they want to be releasing at least 1 quality game each quarter.
Looks cool - nice!
The Wasteland series has been awesome. Looking forward to seeing what inXile can do with a larger budget. That's always been their issue.
We'll see, I'm immediately skeptical of anything MS has their thumb on.
