Mafia news was teased by one of their actors earlier this year. Seems legit.

Mafia 1 and 2 are fantastic. I'd love to see more from Vito & Joe so I hope this carries on from the slight cliffhanger at the end of 2.

Hopefully they'll announce at Gamescom, don't care if it's at MS' conference so long as there is not exclusive bullshit. By that I mean the game isn't exclusive.

Hell yes! About time.

Really hoping for a more fleshed out open world this time. There was so much potential in 2, it's actually frustrating.

For what it's worth, the 2K studio making this (Hangar 13), has the director of Star Wars 1313 on it, and some ex-Telltale folk it seems. The idea of a branching narrative Mafia intrigues me, if that's where this goes.

IIRC there was a rumor that there are 3 playable characters. Not sure if this was debunked.

edit: I thought this was done by 2K San Francisco? Or is Hangar 13 == 2K San Francisco?

Mafia 2 felt like it had a lot of trouble during development which impacted the final game. Mafia 1 will remain one of my favourite games evern, I hope they can capture that magic again.

Can't say I ever played any of the Mafia games. The perception I got from reviews and impressions was that it was a pretty average yet slightly enjoyable game but nothing special. Kinda of a B-Movie game like Just Cause was. Didn't realise there was a demand for it?

In my veins!!! Please. Loved both games. Amazing PhysX implementation in Mafia II made shooting so satisfying, if new game is a thing i hope they will use it again.

I have no idea if this one is legit, but it sounds awesome :P

That's good to hear, would be glad to see another one. Enjoyed both Mafia games, only thing I didn't like was a sudden and unsatisfying ending of Mafia 2. It provided no closure, so I hope that's rectified.

Yes, the list of cut contents for Mafia 2 made me sad, like extremely sad.

Mafia 1 is gonna stay as one of the best games of all time for me.

Can't freaking wait for this.

It did have a lot of trouble.
Rockstar North had to come help them out.

Mafia 2 was disappointing for me, but the first game is still one of my favorite games of all time. So I'm at least anxious to see what they'll do with it.

2K Czech is still alive and they have been quiet for a long time. I think that they are still working on Mafia game.

i actually enjoyed mafia 2 a whole bunch. i just hope if there is a sequel the world has more of a reason to be open. because it didn't really surve any purpose in the second game, much like LA noire.

Lots of ex-2K Czech guys have relocated to SF to work at Hangar 13.

well the main brains behind Mafia 1 quit 2K Czech during Mafia2 development(disagreements about 2K cuts) and founded Warhorse studios

Why would that be weird though? Many of the teams members had huge problems with the game director and the development wasn't smooth at all.

I can imagine it cost Take-Two extra to call in the GTA guys to help them out by the end of development, because they couldn't finish it themselves.

I meant more because 2k Czech exists and is apparently not doing like, anything. Even their website appears to have not been updated. What exactly have they been doing that hasn't gotten them shuttered yet if they're not working on Mafia 3?

There were debates about who were doing it in the last couple of threads and it sounded like what it is left of 2K Czech might be doing it - they worked on it previously so it would make sense

Didn't their financial report suggest that they'll have a major new game out before the end of March? Seems like a quick turnaround if they're going to announce it later this year; of which I approve.

I was of the understanding that their new studio in 'The Bay' (presumably San Francisco?) was developing it. They were briefly helmed by Rod Fergusson before he went back to work on Gears.
