According to a few reports, the new Mafia game being developed by Hangar 13 could be a prequel set in Italy. The report also suggests that the game would be made using the new Unreal Engine 5. While nothing has been confirmed till now, we could see more announcements related to the game in the coming months.
While there still might be a long time for the new Mafia game, to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the original Mafia, 2K Games has also announced that they would be making the Mafia game free for a limited time on Steam!
