The Bard’s Tale 4: Barrows Deep released today, and if it sells well enough, inXile Entertainment’s boss says he’ll try to buy back Interplay Entertainment.
According to a tweet from Brain Fargo overnight, he is serious about trying to acquire Interplay, a company he co-founded in 1983.
Interplay was the original creator of the Fallout series and published the Baldur’s Gate and Descent franchises.
“I’m asked what would we do if The Bard’s Tale 4: Barrows Deep on PC is a big hit,” Fargo said. How about this stretch goal: I will attempt to buy Interplay back if we manage to sell over 2 million units in the first 18 months.”
Buying Interplay back would include IP such as Dragon Wars, Earthworm Jim, Sacrifice and Kingpin, he said in a subsequent tweet.
The list of Interplay-developed and published games is a long one.
