A recent news of Mafia III
Mafia 3 in development for Xbox 720 & PS4 – Report


Quote:
Mafia 3 is currently in development for next-gen consoles, according to an alleged 2K Games source close to Eurogamer.cz.

The Eurogamer.cz report also states that Mafia 3 was originally due to hit Xbox 360 and PS3, but was pushed back to next-gen formats.

We contacted 2K Games for comment and a company rep told us, “2K does not comment on internet rumour or speculation.”

The source also claims Mafia 3 will launch 2013.

The first Mafia game is probably the best game I've ever played.

It was a tough job to make a great sequel of the first title. Story wise the second one is not even good. But I like the gameplay and Empire Bay city. I heard a rumor that Mafia III might be a direct sequel to Mafia II which I don't want. I want a new protagonist, a new era and a new settings. Just like Assassin's Creed do with each numbered sequel.

I loved the second Mafia games, the characters were really likable. Hoping for a third game soon.

Totally agree with this.

The original (which i still own the PC version of) is a splendid game indeed, the score was very well executed as was the writing. I liked playing Mafia II but i didn't enjoy it as much as the first, needless to say i sold it once i Platinum-ed it

The first Mafia game is a work of art. On the back of the case it's got a quote from same magazine which says "the video game of the best gangster movie Scorsese never made". Probably the best way of describing it.

Got the second game but haven't got round to playing it yet.

Love both of them, Mafia 2 wasn't as good ad the first one, but it was definitely one of the best games I played in 2010.

I'm surprised (pleasantly so) to see this much love for the original Mafia. I kept thinking it's just unknown around here.

As for Mafia II, I must admit the beginning of Chapter 2 could be one of my favourite gaming moments ever. It was brief, but still very memorable. Furthermore I greatly appreciated the occasional musical cameos from the first game, and of course the rather unexpected cameo of Tommy as well. Last but not least, I ended up liking the sequel's main theme notably better than the one of the first game (although I guess that's just because I heard the one from the first game way too many times now and just know it all too well).

The other aspects and moments of the game however proved to be rather disappointing. Don't get me wrong, I never expected the sequel to come anywhere near the excellence of the first game (quite simply because the first game truly is a one of a kind piece of work, not to mention Vávra leaving the development halfway through, and the fact the sequel never aspired for an equal level of realism and difficulty) but even so it was just...underwhelming. Too short, too easy and the audiovisuals aside completely free of any wow-factors.

Have only played the 2nd one so far. Loved the part when the 2 drunk guys were singing in the back of the car.

Can't link to it on here because it has at least one f bomb.
