inXile entertainment announced that its Kickstarter campaign for The Bard’s Tale IV reached its goal of $1.25 million, meaning the game will get made, thanks to the support of the backers.

“On the 30th anniversary of the original, it’s so exciting to know we’ll be making a long-awaited true dungeon crawl sequel. Once again the support of our fans has blown us away, and we will put all our effort into making this the RPG they want and deserve, just as we did with Wasteland 2 and are doing with Torment: Tides of Numenera. Our fans prove once again that the classic single player cRPG genre is far from being dead, long live the RPG!” said Brian Fargo, CEO of inXile Entertainment.
