Paradox have just made this announcement here. Since some of you might be wondering what this means or why it's happening, we'd like to make a short announcement ourselves.

Simply put, the nature of our partnership with our friends at Paradox has changed slightly so that TaleWorlds Entertainment will have more control over the handling of the Mount&Blade franchise from now on, putting us firmly in the saddle. This is something we think will benefit us and Mount&Blade players. :smile:

In reality, we have always been an independent studio and have been managing all the technical aspects and maintenance of our titles. We are now in a position to manage the marketing and distribution side of things too. So we're just becoming a little more independent than before.


Some answers to questions you might have (we'll add things to here if we get a lot of the same question!):

Q: Do I have to buy the game again?
A: No of course not! This will not affect your current games or your experience with the games at all.

Q: How will this affect Bannerlord?
A: Not at all. Bannerlord has been developed exclusively by Taleworlds right from the start.

Q: Oh, so everything's good?
A: Yes! Just keep having fun with our games and stay tuned for news on the new one. :smile:

Oh and those of you who have the game on Steam are getting free "Early Access" to a game out of the deal too.

That is excellent news. It shows the prowess of TW now they no longer need or want to work with Paradox. Good job.

As a matter of fact, all the profit will be at one hand now. Even better.

Good news! Will this decision affect the retail copies of the game in EU? I am sure you guys will still go with Tiglon in Turkey.

Edit: damn typos.

That's nice of them to offer Magicka: Wizard Wars.
I think it'll be free to play, so what you're getting is free "Early Access". Not totally sure.

I would assume so. *affect

So this is like when you no longer need a publisher in game dev tycoon, and you're like "YEAH, I'm my own publisher now and I will not share revenues with a third party!" ?
If that's it, then it's very nice. :smile:

This is good, it means we won't get a Rome 2 problem where the Publisher forces the Developer to release the game when its not ready.

I remember seeing a copy in GAME when I was still living there. That GAME and a bunch of others are shut down completely now though.

It's something we're looking into. Obviously digital sales make up the majority of our business but there's still a chunk of people who like having a hard copy.

So how will this affect M&B Caribbean? (if it's ever going to be released) Since it uses a modified Warband engine I mean.
