Mafia Trilogy Announced, Includes Mafia: Definitive Edition
The Mafia franchise returns with a new game that will presumably bundle together the three main games in the series.
The Mafia Twitter account recently came back to life, prompting speculation that the mobster series might be returning. Now, 2K Games has officially announced a new project called Mafia Trilogy for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
The teaser trailer shows footage from the first three games in the series, spanning Mafia, Mafia II, and Mafia III. The trailer promises a full reveal on May 19, so fans will have to wait a little bit longer to find out all the specifics about the Mafia Trilogy like its release date, platforms, and price. Keep checking back with GameSpot for the latest.
2016's Mafia III is the latest entry in the mainline Mafia series. Developed by one of 2K's newest studios, Hangar 13, Mafia III follows a character named Lincoln Clay who is seeking to start his own organized crime ring in a New Orleans-style city called New Bordeaux. The first two Mafia games, meanwhile, focused on the Italian mob.
The Mafia Trilogy teaser video shows the Hangar 13 logo at the bottom, so it appears the northern California studio is working on this game as well.
The announcement of The Mafia Trilogy comes during the same year that Sony and Microsoft are due to launch their next-generation consoles, the PS5 and the Xbox Series X, but it's unknown if the new Mafia game will release on those systems. The PC version will be available on both Steam and the Epic Game Store. According to a now-dead page on the Microsoft Store, the game is arriving on May 19, but this could be a placeholder date.
