TaleWorlds Entertainment

is an independent game development company located in Ankara, Turkey, founded in 2005.


TaleWorlds is an official brand of İkisoft Software Company and have been developing PC games under the brand "TaleWorlds Entertainment" since 2005. The company's first game, Mount & Blade, was completed in September 2008, its second game Mount & Blade: Warband was released on March 29, 2010, and its third game was Mount & Blade: With Fire & Sword was released on May 3, 2011. Their studio is located in Middle East Technical University(METU)-Technopolis. The studio is currently working on Mount and Blade II: Bannerlord as confirmed in a PC Gamer interview by Designer and Producer Mikail Yazbeck.


Taleworlds Entertainment was founded by Armağan Yavuz, who studied Computer Sciences 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 still in its beta stage. The company had 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, which brought in over three-million dollars in income. This has exceeded all expectations and motivated the company to develop their second game Mount & Blade: Warband as the sequel to the first game.

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.

In 2014, a Russian game studio named Snowbird Games published an RPG called "Caribbean!", a 17th-century pirate RPG which takes place in the Caribbean, developed on the same game engine as Mount & Blade. These were the developers that created Mount & Blade: With Fire and & Sword.

It was announced in 2012 that Taleworlds Entertainment is working on a new and long-awaited second game of the series, titled Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord. The release date is sometime in late 2016 or early 2017.
