New World is already getting exciting additions soon and more have been announced, like the mount system.
However, the player base kept asking for the feature to be added and when big influencer names joined in to boost the signal, the tide seemed to shift.
Eventually, Asmongold was told by AGS that the mounts are indeed in the works and the popular streamer published the information on September 1, 2022.
Considering Asmongold's high profile, it was unlikely that AGS would lead him on but it was still not an official confirmation directly from the devs themselves.
This came close to the end of the same month in the Developer Update that mostly discussed the upcoming content and features such as Brimstone Sands map, the greatsword and more.
However, in one brief section, AGS confirmed that they are working on mounts but don't have an estimated release window just yet, suggesting the development of the feature is still in its infancy. You can see the confirmation in the video above, starting at 26:20 time stamp.
