Mafia Trilogy Remastered and Mafia: Definitive Edition Set to Launch

The cult classic Mafia franchise is being remastered, several official and unofficial news reveal. In current formulation, it seems like Mafia 2 and Mafia 3 will get more than a simple remaster.

Earlier today, 2K Games released a teaser for the Mafia Trilogy, depicting ‘gussied up’ footage from Mafia 2 and 3. The complete reveal won’t take place for another week, as a leaked listing on Microsoft Store suggests that the Mafia 2 remaster wouldn’t be available until May 19th.

Mafia: Definitive Edition to Launch in August

We initially noticed that there’s no word about the first game, which was taken as a sign that it will be bundled in but not upgraded. However, that’s not the case because as soon as the Mafia Trilogy news surfaced, Mafia: Definitive Edition showed up on the Microsoft Store but has now been taken down.

The Definitive Edition was listed for release on August 27th, and we’re eagerly awaiting it because the screens listed with the game look fantastic. Buying the edition will unlock Tommy Angelo’s suit and cab in the Mafia 2 and 3.

“Part one of the Mafia crime saga – 1930s, Lost Heaven, IL. Re-made from the ground up, rise through the ranks of the Mafia during the Prohibition era of organized crime,” the description read. “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 brief teaser released by 2K Games did not say much other than the trilogy’s new platforms, namely PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Stadia.

However, it matches with Mafia 2’s recent reappearance on rating boards all over the world, which suggested the game was scheduled for a re-release on current consoles. The original Mafia launched back in 2002 for PC, PS2 and the original Xbox.
