That is irrelevant, the people who are hyped right now have already paid for the game. Just being the 2nd big Kickstarter-funded game will ensure its eventual launch will be hyped and publicized.

What effect will that have on new purchasers? I remember Might and Magic 8 tanked in sales compared to 7 and part of this was aged-engine related.
I wasn't aware that any game could launch with a cutting edge engine. All games have development cycles. Many niche (not indie) games have lower budgets than Wasteland 2 will have and don't have cutting-edge graphics, yet sell plenty of copies.
