Will it come to console? Fargo says they're focusing "100% of energies on PC while in development," but it could for those pining over their PlayStation 2 gamer days.

The Bard's Tale from inXile was back in 2004 and was a tongue-in-cheek spoof of fantasy RPGs, where our 'hero' bard was more interested in 'coin and cleavage' than saving the world from itself. However The Bard's Tale IV looks to be a proper sequel to the series, and not so much a parody.

This new Bard's Tale will be set in Skara Brae, the location where the very first in the series was set back in 1985. It will feature turn-based combat but everyone will be taking their turns at the same time, withHearthstone having inspired this decision, reports .
Brian Fargo and inXile will be launching a Kickstarter campaign for The Bard's Tale IV.
