Mafia: Definitive Editon Release Date Pushed Back to September

2K has announced its remake of the original Mafia game is being delayed to September 25, 2020, almost a month away from the initial August 28, 2020 launch.

In a tweet earlier this week, the game’s release would be set back from the worldwide coronavirus pandemic which made the third person crime epic “increasingly challenging” to finish.

“All of us are committed to crafting an updated experience worthy of that timeless classic,” 2K wrote. “We appreciate your patience and understanding as we make Mafia: Definitive Edition the very best it can be for all of our fans worldwide.

The remake of its first installment was announced earlier in May 2020, along with current gen remasters of its sequels Mafia II and III. Its visuals would receive a significant overhaul for 4K resolutions and higher graphical fidelity. A number of additional gameplay tweaks would address past gripes while each title would come with their respective (familiar) plotlines.

2K decided to remake the original game, originally released in 2002 by Illusion Softworks from the ground-up. It would also modernize the story under tighter third-person shooting controls and an expansive world. The Definitive Edition also features additional acting and brand new missions.

Developers also promised additional gameplay on the way for July 22, 2020, giving players an in-depth look at the new mechanics and cinematic level design.

Mafia: Definitive Edition is now releasing on September 25, 2020 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
