It looks like a Mafia 3 announcement might be on the way in the near future, as Take-Two Interactive, parent company of 2K Games, look to have registered some domains for the next game in the Mafia Series.
There is the possibility that the registrations are fake, but the domains are attached to servers at Take2Games.com which is their official site. As well as that, they are also attached to RockstarGames.com, so could we be seeing Rockstar develop the game rather than the previous developers Illusion Softworks (or 2K Czech), or at least have a hand in it?
Rumors that a new game being in the works have been floating around since 2012, when it was reported that 2K Czech have been working on a third entry. No doubt development has been somewhat slowed by some job losses at the company, but in 2014, 2K Czech merged with their Prague counterparts meaning that the have quite the staff now and are surely in full swing for some game, especially since they haven’t released anything since 2011. Because of that it is unlikely Rockstar had much of a hand, but it is possible considering they’re experts in open world games.
More recently, Mafia 2 voice actor Rick Pasqualone who played Vito Scaletta teased that there many be a Mafia announcement shortly.
@Nataliebennette very nice. Thanks. Might have some Mafia news very soon!

I am quite the fan of the Mafia games, particularly 2, and would love to see another game in the series. What about you? Let us know in the comments!
