Mafia: Definitive Edition has been delayed by a month, from August 28 to September 25. Developer Hangar 13 explains that the delay has been caused by difficulties caused by working amid the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. A statement says that "finalizing everything in time for that launch date has become increasingly challenging", and "the last thing we want to do is compromise the quality of the experience."
To make up somewhat for the extra wait, Hangar 13 will show an "extended look" at Mafia: Definitive Edition gameplay on July 22. Mafia: Definitive Edition is a total remake of the 2002 original, inncluding a new game engine, updated script, new cutscenes, added gameplay sequences, and more. It comes as a part of the Mafia: Trilogy collection. We've heard previously that the game will be learning from mistakes made on Mafia 3.
