Mount&Blade - Interview @ GDN

Gamers Daily News has caught up with Armagan to talk about the newly announced multiplayer addon for Mount & Blade:

[GDN] Why wasn’t multiplayer included in the original Mount & Blade?
How was the decision to do a multiplayer expansion arrived at for Mount & Blade?

[AY] Players had been requesting Multiplayer functionality since the time we had released our first beta version. However, at the time, our primary focus was the single player gameplay, and we thought we should rather focus on one thing rather than try to do them both at the same time.

After the release of the game, we were free to work on something new. At the same time, we were researching and thinking about how we could implement multiplayer functionality, and we were able to come up with a method that we thought would work well enough. Multiplayer was also something we were very interested in, since we wanted to play against each other ourselves. And lastly, we thought the single-player game would benefit  from this as well, since we would need to improve the balance and fine-tune combat mechanics.
