The Mafia Definitive Edition remake has slipped a month due to “challenging” COVID-19 working conditions.
A little under two months ago, we reported that the Mafia trilogy was getting a spit and polish. Specifically, the first Mafia game is getting a full, ground-up remake; Mafia 2 is getting a visual upgrade remaster; and Mafia 3 is, well, staying the same because it’s only a few years old.
Mafia 3 was, of course, available to purchase at the time of the announcement. It’s a current-gen game. You can just go and pick it up. The Mafia 2 Remaster received a surprise launch on the day of the announcement.
And the Mafia remake, called Mafia Definitive Edition? That was set to release on August 28, 2020. Was.

“Finalising everything in time for that launch date has become increasingly challenging due to the ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic,” reads the statement on the official Mafia Twitter account, “and the last thing we want to do is compromise the quality of the experience.”
Mafia Definitive Edition will now release on September 25, 2020, with an extended gameplay preview scheduled for July 22.
