In 2018, we heard that 2K opened a new office in the UK with a split/second director. Fans wondered if a new Mafia game is coming. However, in 2018 it was very unlikely as Mafia 3 was just recently introduced.
Similarly, the Mafia 2 Definitive Edition was also rated by the Korean Board half month ago. The rating indicates that the game is almost done with development. Usually, games are rated after they are done. Mafia twitter account tweeted “family” after two years. We are pretty convinced that a new Mafia game is coming. In my opinion, there are high chances that it’ll be Mafia 2 Definitive Edition.
Mafia 3 was a disgrace, according to many people who have enjoyed Mafia 1 and 2. Reports claim that 2K Czech which made Mafia 2 was not handed over the Mafia 3 project. The game made by 2K American really disappointed the fan. In my opinion, Mafia 3 was not a bad game. It lost its reputation because of bad optimization, and repetitive missions. The cut scenes, story, and New Bordeaux was a job well done.
The word family is very difficult to understand. Mafia 2 and Mafia 3 is all about family. Vito takes his sister’s revenge numerous times and does illegal work because his family needs money to finish off the loan. Similarly, in Mafia 3, Lincoln takes revenge after his family is burned down by Marcano. The entire game revolts around the killing of various people, who were involved in burning down his family.
Like I said Mafia 2: Definitive Edition is very likely. A lot of leaks have also surfaced the Internet, which confirmed Mafia 2 remaster is in works. Mafia 2 is also one of the greatest games ever released, so there is that. 2K must revive a nearly dead project. Other games like Resident Evil and Final Fantasy are getting remaster, so there is a lot of market to it.
