Wasteland 2 Kickstarter wraps with nearly $3M in the bank

Wasteland 2 Kickstarter pulls in more then triple its goal.

Wasteland 2's Kickstarter-fueled fundraiser wrapped this morning with nearly $3 million in pledges, blowing away its goal of $900,000 to fund a sequel to 80s post-apocalyptic role-playing game Wasteland.

More than 61,000 pledged $2,933,147 toward the sequel, according to the official Kickstarter page for the project. And that doesn't include the more than $100,000 given directly to the developer through PayPal.

The money raised will go towards creating an old-school role-playing game that continues the story of Wasteland with the help of a growing team of developers. Chris Avellone, Obsidian's chief creative officer, has signed on to help design and write the game.

Wasteland 2 is expected to hit the PC, Linux and Mac OS X next October, according to the Kickstarter.
