There are Rumors circulating that Mafia 4 is coming soon!
Yesterday I came across with a tweet, which says that Mafia 4 is coming and my discord friends were also talking about it. Do you heard it too? If yes then let’s take a look about this and whether Mafia 4 is really coming or not? Read this article till the end with me and know everything about Mafia 4.
Before heading to the main news, lets take a look at the series of Mafia game. In this section I’ll take you back to history of the Mafia series and watch the time from where it was actually started.
Coming to the first game of Mafia series, Mafia. The publisher of this game was Illusion software. This game is came to know by gathering of developers in 2002. In this game you’ll see yourself as a taxi driver and the story is also based on it.
Sounds interesting? Yeah, it is. In Mafia, the plot revolves around a taxi driver who later turned into a mobster because of the personal issues. This game became a instant hit shortly after it’s release and by the end of 2008, the first title (Mafia) almost sold 2 million copies worldwide. Not only this but Mafia received a lot of greetings by fans and critics. With this much sale how can the company ignore this game? The huge success of this game made the Developers realized it’s worth and that’s how we get Mafia 2.
By this time something changes in the company. The original name of the company changes into a different one. In 2008, Illusion software changed it’s name and became 2K Czech. And in the same year they releases another Mafia game i.e. Mafia 2 in 2010. The Developers of this game 2K Czech and at the same time 2K gameswere titled as a publisher.
The story of Mafia 2 revolves around frictional Empire which was settled on the New York City. The time phrase of this game is 1940s to 1950s which turns the Graphic of this game into retro style. The main protagonist of this game was Vito Scaletta, who was a brilliant war veteran but at the same time a Sicillian-American mobster. He was actually a kind man but destiny changes his route and make him a Mafia. While living in the city, Vito gets involved in the struggle life. He started to get in touch with the town’s Mafia crime families because he was actually trying to pay back his father's debts and also to establish a better livelihood for himself.
The actual sales of Mafia 2 were not released for the public but according to the analyst assumption for sales of this game was almost close to breaking the record. You can think of it like 2K have taken 6 year of development time for this game. Now, in this 6 year the rate of production of this game increase significantly too. Like the Mafia 1 this game became a Hit too but the sales didn’t reach as per the expectations of 2K games.
Now talking about the most current version of this series i.e. Mafia 3. But something changed this time too. This time the Developers of this game is Hangar 13 and publisher are as usual the 2K games.

Now this game was gone through a rollercoaster and recieves a lot of criticism. But on the other hand, this game was allegedly become The fastest selling game for 2K and this game sold 4.5 billion copies in it’s first week, which is quite a good achievement!
This game follows the Lincoln Clay, who was a war veteran and a former criminal. He was the main protagonist of this game. The location of Mafia 3 video game is based on a fictional city in New Bordeaux. Like all the classic Mafia game, this game also set up in the time of 1968. The main character of this story, Lincoln was forced to return to the life of crime. The main goal of Lincoln was to establish his own company and want to take revenge with Italian mob.
