The Bard’s Tale 4 was announced today by inXile Entertainment CEO Brian Fargo during a panel at PAX South.

bards_tale_4_logoinXile hinted around back in December that a sequel was in the works.

Granted, The Bard’s Tale wasn’t mentioned. Still, everyone figured this was the game when Wasteland 2 project lead Chris Keenan stated the team had started work on “another RPG that has been passionately demanded of us for a while now.”

Fargo said on Twitter that The Bard’s Tale 4 was “official” and he was “personally excited to be working on this.”

The game is apparently a sequel to The Bard’s Tale 3, which was released in 1988, and will feature “traditional turn-based combat,” according to Gamespot which sat in on the panel.

More details will be announced at a later date and the game will be crowdfunded on Kickstarter.
