Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord has been one of the most anticipated games of the past decade. The game has one of the most fought about release date conspiracy theories as it was in development for so many years.
Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord has been released on March 20, 2020 only on PC. The game has been widely accepted by gamers and it has been receiving almost daily updates since it’s launch.
Bannerlord Release Date for Consoles
Now that Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord is out and hundreds of thousands of players are enjoying it on Steam, many are wondering when will they be able to download it on their consoles, like the previous Warband. Unfortunately the development team has confirmed that the game will not be released on any consoles in the near future, as it is still in very early access beta on Steam.
The team will be putting all their efforts into developing the game first on PC and once the game reaches a full release, only then will they start making console ports. This means before you can see the new Bannerlord on consoles, it will most likely be a few years until the games full release.
The developers are very hard at work in 2020
Now that the game has been released, the response has been insane and the game instantly became the most sold game of 2020 on Steam. TaleWorlds has provided us with extensive Q&A posts with their animators and 3D artists. When delving deeper into the progress and announcements, we can see what is actually under works as we speak.
The key points the dev team is focusing on right now is improving map design to create bigger and more interesting towns and areas. When compared to the first game, this is definitely a big improvement. The second major area TaleWorlds is focusing on in Bannerlord is Combat AI. Arguably the biggest selling point for the entire series is the unique combat. Therefore no amount of hours spent improving it can possibly go to waste.
As noted above, there have been small and big updates nearly every day since release, which shows us the devs are definitely working on the game full time and addressing any concerns the users have.
