The game was due to release on May 19, 2020, after being pushed back from its original Q4 2019 release date following the studio’s acquisition by Xbox Game Studios.
OnlySP recently spoke to Fargo about the game. In comparing the COVID-19 pandemic to the post-apocalyptic world of Wasteland 3, Fargo said that “the timing of the game does feel a bit surreal but fortunately, we are offering an escape from the real world.”
The game will be available for Linux, Mac, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
