inXile entertainment today put out a fresh update to go over Wasteland 3 details and they've decided to delay the Linux and Mac versions.
After a successful Fig crowdfunding campaign in 2016, it saw inXile manage to pull in over three million dollars although over two million of that was monies from Fig directly. Since then, Microsoft swooped in and acquired inXile (and
Obsidian Entertainment) as part of Xbox Game Studios back in 2018.
The actual release date for Wasteland 3 was only put down recently as August 28, today though that changes for Linux and Mac. In the update post they said they made the "difficult decision" to focus currently on just Windows 10, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. However, they will be "prioritizing" the work needed for Linux and Mac "post-launch" and they expect it to be finished "by the end of the year". Delays are never fun but if this means they truly dedicate some resources to it, therefore ensuring it results in "a better overall product for Mac and Linux" then hopefully it will be a good quality port.
With that in mind, they seem to be going about this in quite a sensible way and mentioned that they're offering refunds beyond the normal cut-offs but you need to do so before keys/physical rewards have shipped. So if you can't wait, you should act on a refund now.
You can wishlist/follow or whatever else on GOG and Steam. Latest trailer available below:
