inXile boss Brian Fargo has told Eurogamer he plans to retire after Wasteland 3 ships in 2019.
InXile has released a gameplay video of The Bard's Tale 4 that shows off combat for the first time.
Hot on the heels of the announcement of Wasteland 3, inXile has released a teaser video for one of the other games it has in the works: The Bard's Tale 4.
UPDATE 15TH JUNE: The game will be made - The Bard's Tale 4 Kickstarter campaign has just surpassed its $1.25m goal.
Van Buren was the codename for a game Black Isle Studios intended to be Fallout 3. But in 2003 Black Isle went down with the Interplay ship and the series would eventually be resuscitated by Bethesda - a series that will continue, maybe as soon as this year, with Fallout 4.
InXile has released an in-engine graphics demo of The Bard's Tale 4 to give people an idea of what the crowdfunded dungeon-crawler will look like.
UPDATE 2/6/15 2.20pm inXile Entertainment has now launched its $1.25m Kickstarter campaign for Bard's Tale 4.
The Bard's Tale 4 Kickstarter has been a success, comfortably reaching its $1.25m goal with the best part of a month to spare. It ends 11th July.
27 years after the release of The Bards Tale 3, Brian Fargo has announced plans to return to the cult classic fantasy role-playing series for a sequel.
Fargo, whose studio inXile Entertainment successfully crowdfunded Wasteland 2 and Torment: Tides of Numenera, will again take to Kickstarter, this time to raise money to develop The Bard's Tale 4.
The last game in the fantasy role-playing series was inXile's 2004 action RPG The Bard's Tale, which was a comedy spin-off of the original, Interplay-developed games. Fargo indicated The Bard's Tale 4 would be closer to the original games than the humorous spoof, calling it "a proper sequel to the trilogy".
