It's always been assumed that Brian Fargo's next project would be Wasteland 2. He might even have said it somewhere, I can't remember. He's now hiring some people to work on a "Next-Gen Console Multiplayer Networked Game Project" using the Unreal engine.
Let's hope that's not Wasteland.
And I also remember him saying that Wasteland 2 would be a very PC-focused project, as opposed to Bard's Tale being a console one.
