Minutes later, the announcement post goes back live in their Facebook page and they also updated their official website.
If ever, Mafia III will be the third installment of Mafia gaming franchise. Mafia I was released in 2002 in PC, and later ported for PS2 and Xbox in 2004 while its sequel, Mafia II was released back in 2010 for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. Both games received mostly positive reviews from critiques and gamers so I’m sure that Mafia III will be an installment to look forward to.
