Mafia 3 Confirmed, Full Reveal At Gamescom in August
2K Games parent company Take-Two Interactive said in March 2013 that it had an “extensive pipeline” of unannounced games in development.
“Mafia III is the next installment in the popular series known for immersing players into a world of organized crime through rich narrative storytelling and a beautifully crafted game world featuring period-accurate cars, music, and fashion,” 2K said in a statement.
Mafia III will be announced during Gamescom in August, beginning with a reveal trailer on August 5 at 5 AM PDT / 8 AM EDT. GameSpot will be on the ground at the German gaming event to bring you all the news as it happens.
In January 2015, voice actor Rick Pasqualone, who played Mafia 2 protagonist Vito Scaletta, teased that a new Mafia game may be announced soon.
“Might have some Mafia news very soon,” he said on Twitter at the time. To another, who bluntly said, “make Mafia 3,” Pasqualone replied: “Might have some exciting news very soon.”
