InXile has confirmed that its post-apocalyptic role-playing game Wasteland 2 will officially launch by “the end of August of this year.”

Wasteland 2 was successfully funded via Kickstarter back in 2012, and was originally scheduled to launch in October 2013 before being delayed. For those looking to play the game right now, a beta version is available to purchase via Steam’s Early Access program.

“What we’re releasing is a game of much greater scope than we ever dreamed of when starting our Kickstarter,” game designer Brian Fargo said in a recent blog post. “More features, more areas, more reactivity, more words, all thanks to you for funding our game and for giving us the time needed to finish it.”

Fargo added that the game is “internally feature complete, but but not feature locked.” This basically means that all of the game’s major features are in place, but tweaks and optimizations may still be made before launch. “If a feature is not good enough, we’ll cut it, but if fan feedback and internal review indicates it’s vital, we’ll double down on it. But the main focus for the new few months lies with balancing, optimizing and of course mercilessly hunting down bugs.”

The developer recently released an update for the Wasteland 2 beta that added the final major area of Arizona.
