Well rumors that Mafia III was in the making appear to be true, as 2K have announced on Twitter that they will be revealing Mafia III next week on August 5th… While I guess revealing the game exists in the process.
2K’s UK Twitter posted, “We’re revealing Mafia 3 next week! See the announcement trailer on 5/8/15 at 1PM BST.”

It has been 5 years since the last Mafia game, which came out on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC in 2010, with the original coming out way back in 2002 for PlayStation 2, Xbox and PC. Going by past games, expect it to be on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
Going by the cars in the teaser image, it appears that the game is set in more modern times compared to the previous titles, around the 70’s or 80’s though it could easily be set closer to today also.
It is a great time for a new Mafia game, after the fantastic Mafia II which myself and Kat absolutely loved, both of us completing it 100%. What are your thoughts though? Excited? Let us know in the comments!
