Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord announced

For a series about building an army of warriors and rampaging across battlefields on foot with axes swinging, the announcement of Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord is awfully quiet. Developer TaleWorlds Entertainment quietly confirmed yesterday that yes, it's making the sequel to Mount & Blade: Warband, but didn't really have much else to say and the teaser trailer revealed little.

For a series about building an army of warriors and rampaging across battlefields on foot with axes swinging, the announcement of Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord is awfully quiet. Developer TaleWorlds Entertainment quietly confirmed yesterday that yes, it's making the sequel to Mount & Blade: Warband, but didn't really have much else to say and the teaser trailer revealed little.

All TaleWorlds has to say about the game is contained in the following paragraph:

This sandbox action-RPG strategy hybrid will take players on a journey into a fictional world of up-close and personal medieval combat on a huge scale, bigger, bloodier and more intense than ever before. Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord will build upon the popular Mount & Blade franchise bringing in many exciting and highly requested new features.

Which is all very vague. Platforms, a release date, and all that are a mystery for now.

      hmm I wonder why they went with "2" in the title and not just the usual expansion pack? new game engine? that would be nice

          seriously, i want huge fucking battles and a much better strategy layer with better ruling options. essentially a mix of crusader kings, mount and blade, and medieval total war.

        That's my guess.
        I hope that I'll have more control over formations in this version. As much as I enjoyed the last couple versions, I'd dearly love to be able to give better orders.

      I hope they have a new engine for Bannerlord, not for the graphics though. I want 600 people on the battlefield at one time.
