History[edit]

TaleWorlds Entertainment was founded by Armağan Yavuz, who studied Computer Engineering in Bilkent University. The idea of being a company became a reality after gamers provided huge support to a hobby project called Mount & Blade, while it was still in its beta stage. The company started to sell e-copies of the beta version of the game online, which funded the development of their first game via the online-sales income.

Publishing their first game in 2008, TaleWorlds Entertainment managed to sell over one million copies of the game throughout the world, and reported over three million dollars in revenue. The company developed their second game Mount & Blade: Warband as a sequel.

In 2014 TaleWorlds released Mount & Blade: Warband on Nvidia Shield, and for the first time, TaleWorlds Entertainment published a game on a platform other than the PC.

It was announced in 2012 that TaleWorlds Entertainment was working on a new and long-awaited second game of the series, titled Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord. which (as of December 2016) has a Steam page, but no set release date.
