Developer InXile Entertainment said it reached an agreement with Obsidian Entertainment to collaborate on the Wasteland 2 Kickstarter project if it reaches a goal of $2.1 million. 

Obsidian CCO, Chris Avellone, will work with the design team. "Wasteland is one of my favorite RPGs of all time, and when Brian asked if I wanted to work on the sequel, I jumped at the chance. While I've worked on Fallout 2 and Fallout: New Vegas, getting the chance to work on the spiritual predecessor to the Fallout franchise is a honor."

InXile founder Brian Fargo added, “I have a history with the guys at Obsidian that dates back to the days of Interplay’s Black Isle studios. Together we created some of the greatest RPG’s of all time, from Fallout 1 & 2 to titles like Icewind Dale and Planescape: Torment. It is great that we now have a chance to reunite on a project like Wasteland 2.”

The Kickstarter project currently sits at $1.6 million. There are 17 days remaining to raise the goal of $2.1 million.
