Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord came out less than a month ago and has already been a big success with PC players. Naturally, fans of the game have started to wonder whether Bannerlord will ever make the jump to PS4 or Xbox.
Is Bannerlord coming to PS4 or Xbox?
It took less than a day after launching for Bannerlord to surpass 200k players. This huge early success is causing PS4 and Xbox players to want to get their hands on it. So, its the game in fact coming to consoles?
The answer is no, not for the time being. TaleWorlds took eight years to develop Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord, and it looks like they are in no rush to port the game onto consoles. But don’t be discouraged, as TaleWorlds haven’t ruled out the possibility of a console port in the future. They just are making sure to warn players that it might take some time before they venture down that road.
TaleWorlds has always focused their attention on PC gaming. Most of their games are exclusive to Microsoft Windows, Linux and MacOS. However, they did hint at the possibility of Bannerlord’s expansion to other consoles in a March 30 tweet.
Now, I find that TaleWorlds tend to keep their promises. So, if they say that they are considering it somewhere down the line, then that is good enough for me. I just don’t think a port will happen anytime soon, but I am hoping we will get one eventually. I really feel this masterpiece should be shared among all medieval game lovers, regardless of their platform of choice.
