During the Xbox E3 2019 briefing, developer inXile Entertainment — now a part of Xbox Game Studios — gave us a new look at the long-awaited Wasteland 3. It seems like we’ll be going to the snow-covered wasteland of Colorado and the Rocky Mountains.

However, development has improved since the team became a part of Microsoft. During an interview with WCCFtech, inXile’s Brian Fargo said that the game is better due to the fact that inXile can call The Coalition or Rare for help. Let’s say that they’re stuck on an issue involving third-person shooting mechanics, they can now pick up the phone and call The Coalition for help. The same applies to issues involving water. You can read an excerpt from the interview below.

I think we’re fortunate because Microsoft trusts us. I think that’s always a concern when companies get bought, that’s what they think… they’re like, we trust you. I mean, even when I start talking about what we want to do in the future, beyond that, I start describing in detail and they go ‘we trust him.’ We’re sharing with all the studios… we talked to the guys at The Coalition. If we’re doing something that involves shooting, we’ll pick up the phone and talk to them. If we want to do anything with water, you know, we’ll talk to the guys doing Sea of Thieves and go… ‘just tell us about your water technology.’ So that’s what’s great. I mean, everybody’s like ‘kumbaya,’ everybody is sharing everything that they’re up to, we’re in constant communication, and we all want to help each other with our craft.

It’s great to see that there’s a lot of collaboration going on between the various Microsoft studios. Hopefully, this will result in polished games across the board because of the level of experience each studio possesses. Sharing ideas and technology across the board is important to growth.

Unfortunately, we still don’t have a release date, but the game is expected in 2020. Since the title has been in development before the acquisition, it’s coming to PlayStation 4 alongside Xbox One and PC.
