[Update]: After two years in Early Access, Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord will be unleashed on October 25th, 2022.

After spending a considerable amount of time in development, Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord finally released onto Steam Early Access on March 30, 2020. Since then the TaleWorlds team has launched a whole bunch of content updates and bugfixes, slowly but surely tweaking just about everything from combat to performance.

That long journey might soon be coming to an end, however, as TaleWorlds have now announced that they are planning to release Mount & Blade 2 in Q4 2021. That said, this is only a tentative release date and if it's deemed that Mount & Blade 2 needs a little bit of extra time, they will absolutely push the release date back for as long as necessary.

As for the console versions, TaleWorlds has once again confirmed that they will indeed be coming, though at a later date. The current focus is entirely on finishing and polishing the PC version, and once that task is complete they will finally begin working on the console ports in earnest.

Once we get a proper release date I'll make sure to let you know. For now, however, you might want to check out the one year anniversary recap as it offers a rather interesting look at the behind-the-scene work that has gone into Mount & Blade 2, as well as how community feedback has changed the direction of updates and features.

As a final note, I'll leave you with the latest video highlighting the Creative Competition winners. Enjoy!
