The sequel, which was funded through Kickstarter, will be headed by Brian Fargo, who executive-produced both the original Wasteland and Fallout games. Alan Pavlish and Mike Stackpole, the original's game's primary designers, are also on board. The project was originally posted on Kickstarter with a funding goal of $900,000. At the end of the campaign, the Kickstarter had raised $2,933,252.
"The #1 request we had during our Kickstarter campaign was to have the ability to play the first game," Brian Fargo said. "Fortunately EA has continued to support us on this project and has granted us the ability to bring the original to the players.
"It is great to be able to make Wasteland available for those feeling nostalgic or who want to experience it for the first time. It certainly will not be a pre-requisite to understand Wasteland 2, but it adds some extra flavor if you did play the prequel."
Wasteland will be bundled with Wasteland 2 when the sequel is ready.
