Rejoice, lovers of quirky, janky, and surprisingly detailed combat games, as TaleWorlds has announced a officially titled sequel to Mount and Blade. Check out the extremely short and uninformative announcement trailer here:
That’s right Mount and Blade II: Bannerlord is coming to… well, it doesn’t say when or where. Sigh. I say “officially titled” as 2010’s Mount and Blade: Warband was considered a sequel to 2008’s Mount and Blade. That being said, with only an year-and-a-half development time, the game was an improvement, but didn’t have the fruits of iteration that a good sequel has. TaleWorlds subsequently released the stand-alone “With Fire And Sword” expansion last May and followed up with the “Napoleonic Wars” expansion to Warband this past April.
