Mafia: Definitive Edition delayed to September

Mafia: Definitive Edition will now release worldwide on September 25. Hangar 13 and 2K had originally planned to release the game one month earlier on August 28, but found that finalizing everything in time for that launch date had become increasingly challenging due to the ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic. Their statement mentioned that the last thing they wanted to do is compromise the quality of the experience.

From the beginning, this has been a passion project for us. 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 of our fans worldwide. All that said, we know you’re anxious to see more. That’s why we’re thrilled to give you an extended look at Mafia: Definitive Edition’s gameplay in just two weeks on July 22.

The team at Hangar 13 and 2K also released a short video to coincide with their statement

We want to express our heartfelt thanks to you for watching our narrative trailer, playing the Definitive Editions of Mafia II and III, and supporting us as we continue building the definitive organized crime saga. We look forward to showing you more on July 22.
