BT4 published by Techland for Xbox and PS4?

There have been rumor on twitter and facebook today that this is happening. Now lots of posts have been deleted. Is it true? Any official news?

I will never understand what InXile see in these console ports, hasn't Brian Fargo admitted that the console sales of WL2/TToN were negligible? "People who game exclusively on a console" and "CRPG players" are two completely different groups, and people who own both a console and a PC will also naturally play these games on PC. Sounds like InXile is doing the same thing that buried Interplay, chasing an audience who doesn't care.
Matthias did nothing wrong!

Me too.

I mostly game on consoles for convenience (and cost).

I think we can confirm this.

Look at the whois for Techland's official Torment site:
Domain Name: TORMENTGAME.COM
Registrar: KEY-SYSTEMS GMBH
Sponsoring Registrar IANA ID: 269
Whois Server: whois.rrpproxy.net
Referral URL: http://www.key-systems.net
Name Server: NS-1372.AWSDNS-43.ORG
Name Server: NS-1892.AWSDNS-44.CO.UK
Name Server: NS-542.AWSDNS-03.NET

And now look at the site "bardstalegame.com":

Domain Name: BARDSTALEGAME.COM

Same registrar, a server in Poland, and registered shortly after the work on Torment was done. And if you go to www.bardstalegame.com you get an error message in Polish.

It's pretty clear that Techland is publishing Bard's Tale 4, and they've only published multiplatform games so far.
