An insider with the nickname Newswire confirmed the development and provided additional information about the new Mafia which is being created on Unreal Engine 5.
According to the source, the new part of the famous series of games about gangsters will be released with the subtitle MAFIA IV. The development studio Hangar 13 is trying to hide the existence of the project and therefore gave it the code name “Nero”, which should reduce the likelihood of new leaks.
The insider also added that the events of the new Mafia will unfold before 1930. Players are waiting for other characters and a self-sufficient story that will somehow intertwine with the characters from the first part. Despite the fact that the project is being created on a new engine, the developers will use the materials and developments of the Mafia: Definitive Edition remake.
Newswire announced the creation of a new Mafia a week ago, in addition, he has long specialized in reliable leaks of 2K Games, so his words can be trusted. In his opinion, the official announcement of the game may take place in the foreseeable future.
