A big, huge, "maybe?". I guess I think Fallout 3's success is a combination of Bethesda, the style of game they make and the extra profile from the Fallout license (both fans and noise created by the hardcore anti-Beth groups).
Wasteland obviously still has fans around but its sheer age means that's a smaller group and those memories are even more faded. I also think post-apoc is niche without a juggernaut like Beth attached to it, so a mainstream fantasy game would easily overcome any advantage of "Wasteland" in my mind if I were a publisher.
But who knows? Maybe their pitch hit exactly the right clone-of-Fallout-3 notes to get a publisher excited.
