It's the Hispanic Heritage Month at FANDOM! It's worth noting that Wasteland, 33 years ago, was one of the first games to allow players to create Hispanic characters with the nationality selection. What's more, the starting Hispanic character, Snake Vargas, eventually became one of the most important movers and shakers of the Arizona wasteland, saving the world twice over as a Desert Ranger! If you're interested in learning more about Hispanic heritage and how it's featured in modern entertainment, join the official Fandom HHM Discord server!

Brian Fargo is the founder of Interplay and one of the creators of Wasteland. He was also the head of the company when Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics were developed and published. While he did not work directly on any of the Fallout games, intros of all three of the aforementioned Fallout games include the words "Brian Fargo presents". He is now the producer of Wasteland 2.

Biography[]

In 1984 Fargo founded Interplay Entertainment, where he worked on most of Interplay's early games (e.g. Bard's Tale and Wasteland). He was the company's CEO until 2002, when majority control of Interplay was acquired by Titus Interactive, and he left the company and was replaced as CEO by Hervé Caen.

In 2003 Fargo founded a new company, InXile Entertainment. In October 2004, InXile released The Bard's Tale for PlayStation 2 and Xbox. A version for Microsoft Windows was released in early 2005.

In 2003, Fargo finally acquired the rights to Wasteland from Electronic Arts and development on Wasteland 2 started in 2012.

Trivia[]
