No new projects from Mafia and Top Spin studio 2K Czech have been officially announced, but if job listings at the company's website are any indication, the studio has bold ambitions for its next body of work.
The Czech Republic-based developer currently has 15 open positions spread across its Prague and Brno offices, two of which call for applicants wishing to work on a "top secret, unannounced, and super interesting project."
A rumor from August suggested a third Mafia game--Mafia III--will debut on next-generation consoles from Microsoft and Sony. The game was reportedly being developed as a launch title for these new platforms, but this has become "unlikely," as 2K Czech is currently in the process of staffing up following the loss of 40 developers last year.
The analyst consensus is that the next Xbox and the PlayStation 4 will be on store shelves for holiday 2013. As for their capabilities, GameStop CEO Paul Raines said in July that these consoles will provide "unbelievable new capabilities for rendering, speeds, et cetera."
A report from earlier this year suggested that 2K Czech was assisting Rockstar North with development on Grand Theft Auto V. A Rockstar representative denied this claim, plainly stating that the two studios are not collaborating on anything.
