The Wasteland 2 Kickstarter has been funded, with the total exceeding $3 million. This means that the game will have development support from developers at Obsidian and will see mod tools created during the regular development process.

“We did it!  Thanks to each and every one of you, we have completed our incredibly successful Kickstarter campaign,” wrote Brian Fargo. “It has been an amazing ride and one of the most memorable achievements I’ve ever had.  Being able to interact with you all on such a personal level has been amazing.  I can’t imagine going back to making games any other way.  With Double Fine’s success, the world was watching to see if that was an anomaly or if this fan-funded approach could be a viable means of changing the world of video games.  Together, we’ve proved that fan-funding is here to stay and we can’t wait to see where you take it next.  We are fully committed to doing whatever we can to keep this movement alive and strong.”

Everyone that had difficulties with their payments will be contacted by Kickstarter and they will have a week to correct their information or their payment will be voided. Those that have to share personal info in the Kickstarter because of their reward tier will be asked to do so via email.

“We have opened up a store at  We currently have the digital copy available for $20, and we will leave that pre-order up during production,” added Fargo. “If you have friends that missed out on the Kickstarter but still want a copy of the game, they can go there and still get it cheaper than after it is released. Also, if you forgot to add $15 for international shipping on physical rewards, we have added a PayPal option to do so in the store.  In the near future, we will open a backer-only store with some great exclusive items that won’t be available to the general public.”

“So, now we get started on the game!  We are in full production mode for the next 18 months.  Expect to see many updates as we start to shape the experience that you’ve helped create.  If you want to stay in the loop in between our Kickstarter updates, head to our blog and forums at  We will be spending a lot of time interacting with all of you there,” he concluded.
