2K Games has confirmed that Mafia III is really happening and it’ll make its worldwide debut at Gamescom next week.
Everyone hates announcements of an announcement, but we suspect Mafia fans are going to forgive 2K this one time – as they’ve just confirmed that Mafia III is real and it’s going to get an unofficial unveiling at Gamescom next week.
There’s almost no information at the moment, beyond the image above, and the fact that the announcement trailer will go live on Wednesday, August 5 at 1pm BST.
That’s the first day of Gamecom in Germany, the closest European equivalent to E3. It’s worth noting that the unveiling isn’t on Tuesday, when some companies have their own pre-show event, which suggests it’s not a format exclusive.
