Wasteland 2 is a future sequel to the original Wasteland, to be developed at inXile Entertainment by Brian Fargo, Alan Pavlish, Ken St. Andre and Michael A. Stackpole, the original designers of Wasteland.
In 2003, InXile (founded by Wasteland's producer, Brian Fargo) acquired the rights to the Wasteland title.
