Mafia is one of my most favorite games and it looks like Mafia: Definitive Edition is around the corner. Today, many users on Reddit posted a link to the game's page on the Xbox Store (opens in new tab). The file size is still a placeholder, but it's Xbox One X Enhanced and runs at 4K resolution on the console.

Remade from the ground up, rise through the ranks of the Mafia during the Prohibition era of organized crime. After a run-in with the mob, cab driver Tommy Angelo is thrust into a deadly underworld. Initially uneasy about falling in with the Salieri crime family, Tommy soon finds that the rewards are too big to ignore.

The Xbox Store says that it's coming on August 28, but we just received word that the title has been pushed back to September 25. 2K Games said the following.

Though we'd originally planned to release the game one month earlier on August 28, finalizing everything in time for that launch date has become increasingly challenging due to the ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic, and the last thing we want 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.

We'll have to wait a little longer to play it. The added time should help polish up the experience further.

  • I played all three Mafia games, they gave me some of the best gaming experience I've ever had. The atmosphere and story lines are great. The cars, the music, everything fits within the story and time.
  • I was bugging the developer about this 2 years ago. 2 years later & how about that baby!!! Let's go!!!
  • Definitely buying this and the second game.
