Because of the ongoing struggle with the current COVID-19 pandemic the initial date for the release of Mafia: Definitive Edition will be pushed back to September 25th from the initial August 28th. From what the company has said the reason for that is “The last thing we want to do is compromise the quality of the experience.”
As much as the project is poured with love by the fans it is also loved by the developers which also worked on the original Mafia game and have an everlasting love towards the franchise. They promise that Mafia: Definitive Edition will bring the very best experience to all of its fans worldwide.
Following this bold claim, they set to show gameplay in just two weeks AKA on July 22nd.
And as a last to their statement, they show off their gratitude to the fans for watching their narrative trailer and playing the Definitive editions of their previous games Mafia II and Mafia III and for the ongoing support to the creation of the definitive sage. They end it all with a welcome to all fans to come to watch the gameplay on July 22nd.
