As it teased in December 2014, InXile Entertainment, the developer that recently released Wasteland 2, is working on another new entry in an older role-playing game series, The Bard's Tale.

InXile Entertainment CEO Brian Fargo announced The Bard's Tale IV at PAX South this morning. "It's official.. And I'm very personally excited to be working on this," Fargo said on Twitter, where he also posted the logo you can see above. "More details to follow."

The most recently released game in the series is 2004's spoof of RPGs The Bard's Tale, also developed by Fargo and InXile Entertainment, but The Bard's Tale IV is positioned as a sequel to The Bard's Tale III, released all the way back in 1988.

Fargo said The Bard's Tale IV will feature traditional turn-based combat, and that he aims to crowdfund the game via Kickstarter. That method worked pretty well for Wasteland 2, which grossed $1.5 million shortly after its release.

In April 2014, inXile also raised more than $4 million on Kickstarter for its next project, Torment: Tides of Numenera, which is still in development.
