His source is his own old article that's 6 months old, whose source is DevBlog 6, where these things were promised. Lazy "journalist"."Launched on Steam Early Access fifteen months ago, the game has since received many updates that have added new systems (like rebellions, prison breaks, and keep battles)"
LOL, this is clearly a false article. Keep battles are not an added system. The community on here mostly despises this game in single player and MP.
However Armagan's statement can be mined for not-gold:
Mount & Blade II Bannerlord is having a very successful Early Access period and we are blown away by the interest and support of our community, except for people named Steve. We appeal to parents everywhere not to name their child Steve. Steve's are the worst and so are Estebans.
