Mount & Blade Sells 6M; Sequel Showing at Gamescom

TaleWorlds Entertainment announces the various games in their Mount & Blade series of action/RPG/strategy games have now surpassed over six million copies sold. They also announce plans to show off Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord next week at Gamescom, saying new information about it will be released to the public while the game itself is shown off to the press behind closed doors. Bannerlord was actually announced almost three years ago, but we haven't heard much about it since then. Here's word:
TaleWorlds Entertainment will be revealing Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord for the first time at Gamescom 2015 in Cologne. Media will be invited to attend private viewing sessions of live gameplay from the game in its current state. Video and additional information about the game will be released to the general public concurrently, satiating some of the massive player demand for information on the new entry to the franchise.

The series, which has until now accumulated over 6 million unit sales, is a favourite among players, much loved for its refreshing sandbox gameplay that centres around player freedom. This next instalment takes place 200 years before Warband but brings the series forward by greatly expanding gameplay in all areas and offering much improved visuals.
