The Mafia Definitive Edition launch date was pushed back almost a month on account of the continuing COVID-19 pandemic.
According into an official announcement from the group at 2K, the ground-up reconstruct will launch on September 25 rather than the first planned date August 28. As many game programmers have confessed the COVID-19 pandemic as well as the work-from-home version it’s generated can complicate the dev procedure – in this scenario, 2K writes that virtually everything in time to its first launch date is now “increasingly challenging.”
“From the beginning, this has been a passion project for us,” the announcement reads. “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 Mafia: Definitive Edition the very best it can be for all our fans worldwide.”
To facilitate the sting of this game’s delay, 2K has published a new 15-second teaser trailer which you may observe here. Plus, we will find a protracted look at gameplay July 22 to hold us all over.
Mafia: Definitive Edition will start on PS4, Xbox One, and PC and plunge you into the world of Lost Heaven along with the lifetime of cabbie Thomas Angelo, who gets involved with the mafia. The 2002 game was completely rebuilt, and also the images from the initial trailer show off just how amazing the remastered game seems. We can not wait to research it.
