The remake of the acclaimed 2002 game, Mafia: Definitive Edition has been delayed to September 25, 2K Games publisher has officially confirmed it.
MAFIA DEFINITIVE EDITION
Mafia: Definitive Edition will now release worldwide on September 25. Though we’d originally planned to release the game one month earlier on August 28, finalizing everything in time for that launch date has become increasingly challenging due to the ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic, and the last thing we want to do is compromise the quality of the experience.
From the beginning, this has been a passion project for us. Many of our developers helped create the original Mafia, and all of us are committed to crafting an updated experience worthy of that timeless classic. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we make the game the very best it can be for all of our fans worldwide.
All that said, we know you’re anxious to see more. That’s why we’re thrilled to give you an extended look at Mafia: Definitive Edition’s gameplay in just two weeks on July 22. Be sure to follow on Twitter to see a brand new 15-second teaser now, and visit ii’.._:O’ for more information about the entire Mafia: Trilogy.
We want to express our heartfelt thanks to you for watching our narrative trailer, playing the Definitive Editions of Mafia II and III, and supporting us as we continue building the definitive organized crime saga. We look forward to showing you more on July 22.
