Each game is rated in three instances for PC, PS4 and Xbox One, suggesting that the game will land on all current-gen platforms at launch.If you click on any of the individual trademarks you’ll see that the publisher is listed as 2K Games, with Mafia 3 studio Hangar 13 developing the project. You may remember that Mafia II
was developed by 2K Czech, which has now been merged into Hangar 13. The developer has studios in Novato, Brighton, Prague and Brno.
We first heard rumours of a return for the Mafia franchise back in August of 2019, when initial trademarks were filed. Over the weekend, we heard from Gematsu that the Definitive Edition for Mafia 2 was rated in Korea, which backs up the credibility of this remaster.There’s no information about a potential release date for either of these Definitive Editions but we’ll no doubt hear more about them soon.
For more on Mafia 2, check out our review of the game from 2010, where we called it “a solid little game that will give you a fun ride.” To get up to date with all things Mafia ahead of this potential series update, check out our video which runs through the storyline of the entire series in just five minutes.
