Back of the 29th June we reported that 2K had registered a bunch of Mafia 3 domain names which all but confirmed the title was in the works. Today 2K have sent word that a reveal is scheduled for Wednesday August 5th at Gamescom when they will premier an announcement trailer.
There are no details other than the splash image above. My speculation from the image is that it isn’t set in the 1940s. There are four people in the image, one is a woman with an afro hair style and a full A-line skirt so I’m thinking we’re in the 1970’s now. The guy on the left has a fuller bomber jacket and probably really loose boot cut jeans. I’m not a car person but the four cars behind them look more like cars you’d see at that time too.
No word if we’ll be playing Vito Scaletta but if it is 30 years ahead of Mafia 2 he’ll be pushing it a bit by now. What hasn’t changed is that some poor schmuck is just about to meet a grisly end as he kneels before the four shadowy figures, hands tied behind his back.
Check back on August 5 for more details.
