Mafia: Definitive Edition was initially set to launch on August 28. However, it has since been pushed back due to the on-going COVID-19 pandemic and the development team working from home.
In a statement to fans, both 2K Games and Hangar 13 addressed the delay. “Finalizing everything in time for that launch date has become increasingly challenging due to the ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic, and the last thing we want to do is compromise the quality of the experience,” the companies noted.
