Mafia: Definitive Edition has been delayed until September - Expect a gameplay reveal this month

Mafia: Definitive Edition has been delayed until September 

Hangar 13 has confirmed that Mafia: Definitive Edition has been delayed until September 25th, delaying the game by four weeks. This delay has been attributed to the COVID-19 pandemic, which has caused Mafia: Definitive Edition's development to become "increasingly challenging".    

Mafia: Definitive Edition is a full-on remake of Mafia, promising gamers modern visuals, reworked gameplay and new content which wasn't present within the PS2 original. In essence, this is what Mafia would have looked like if it was developed today, reimagining the game through a modern lens. 

While this delay will be annoying to some fans, it must be remembered that all game delays are designed to deliver a higher quality product to players, and that is a good thing. 

Within this remake, Mafia's Lost Heaven map has been reworked to make the city more fun to drive through, widening streets, reducing steep 90-degree turning angles and making the city a little more crowded in terms of both traffic and pedestrians. 

While the game's story is the same as before, every cinematic in the game has been remastered to deliver a more cinematic flair, and the studio has added additional content to the game to make Mafia's story more engaging than before. Every mission from the original game will be present, but gamers can expect additional dialogue and more character development. 

With Mafia: Definitive Edition, Hangar 13 plans to show gamers how remakes can improve classic games in ways beyond graphics.

On June 22nd, Mafia: Definitive Edition will receive an "extended gameplay reveal". Here, gamers can expect to see Mafia: Definitive Edition in action and hear commentary from Hanger 13's Haden Blackman. 

Mafia: Definitive Edition will release on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on September 25th. On PC, Mafia: Definitive Edition will release on Steam and the Epic Games Store.

Understandable given the circumstances. Every one is three months behind.

Looking at the screenshots I would be happy to wait another year tbh.Quote

As above, I'd rather wait for a more polished version. I've never played the original, but the series always looked interesting to me. Might as well wait for the Definitive Edition before I dive inQuote
