inXile entertainment, the developer of Wasteland 3, has moved the release date from May 19 to August 28.
As with most companies, we moved to a work-from-home environment some weeks ago, and that’s of course introduced new challenges that many of us throughout the world have been learning to manage. We’ve been excited to see the Wasteland 3 Beta so well received, but the reality is that with these new logistical challenges our release was going to be impacted.

Wasteland 3 has thus become the first big release to be postponed because of the coronavirus. Kotaku’s Jason Schreier expects that it won’t be the last.
Not the most important thing in the world right now, but it won’t be too much longer before the Covid-19 video game delays start. Games that are planned for this month and maybe April should be fine, but after that all bets are off
