Following Wasteland 3, Inxile Entertainment has at least two games in the works

InXile lead Brian Fargo teased the possibility of at least two more titles in development, though he added that one is in 'early infancy'.


Following the stellar return to the nuclear wasteland that was… well… Wasteland 3, you might think that InXile is spending all its time on patches and additional content for the just-released title. That’s not entirely true. In fact, according to developer InXile Entertainment’s lead, Brian Fargo, the studio is already hard at work on at least two more games.

This little tidbit of information was revealed in a recent interaction between a fan and Brian Fargo’s personal Twitter. When the fan made mention of hopes that more games were coming from InXile, Fargo confirmed that new games were indeed in the works at the studio. In his initial response, Fargo revealed that InXile was currently working on RPGs (plural), meaning that the studio has more than one game in development behind the scenes. That said, in a further tweet, Fargo revealed that the studio’s “second RPG” is in pre-production. Certainly, this suggests that one of the games is extremely far off, but it also suggests that at least two games are in development.

There’s plenty of reason to be excited for new InXile Entertainment games being in the works at this point. Wasteland 3 showed beyond a shadow of a doubt that Brian Fargo and his team are still more than capable of crafting a rich and intricate RPG world full of good mechanics, adaptive narrative, and interesting stories and locales. It most certainly earned its high score in its Shacknews review here, and its myriad of secrets leave a lot to explore on more than one playthrough.

Safe to say after Wasteland 3, Brian Fargo and the team at InXile Entertainment have earned excitement from fans for any new games they might be working on. Stay tuned to Shacknews as we watch for further details regarding these games in the future.

      I was super excited about WL3. I backed it. I stayed away from all media to give it the best chance at standing on its own. I played it on release day for an hour or two. I haven't played it since and have no desire to go back.

      It didn't hook me at all in the first hour. The controls were janky. The story seemed bland AF. 🤷‍♂️

      Maybe they can do something different that grabs me more but that was the last video game I backed and will likely be the last one I back ever based on promises and not whatever the current offering is.

        its WL2 as the base with a lot of changes. Not sure what you were expecting - they weren't starting from scratch.

        Me personally, I love it. I have played thru a few times - about to start a new one post the big 1.1 patch

          I dunno, I loved WL2 which is why I backed 3. I don't remember WL2 having such janky controls and I don't think the writing felt as hollow/corny.

            I felt that was about the controls at first but towards the end of my first play through I got use to them and now Wasteland 2 controls feels weird.

        The tutorial was extremely dry. The game doesn't pick up till after you get your base.

        Haven't finished the game, but I'm further than you are and the story is definitely nothing special. The game is ok, but I'm not terribly compelled to continue playing.

        My biggest complaint would probably be the jankiness of initiating combat.

          I really wish I could initialize combat by throwing a turret in the middle of baddies.

            I finished the game and liked it and we'll play it again when the DLC is released. But I really wish that they would allow you to select a destination for the map instead of having to manually travel everywhere on a map. I hated going back into town and having to repeatedly click everywhere I needed to go got tedious after a while.
