Mafia II may have been disappointing from a gameplay perspective – but it remains one of the most atmospheric PlayStation 3 titles to date. As such, we’re eager to see what developer 2K Czech can achieve with next-generation hardware.

Fortunately, the studio is rumoured to be working on a sequel to the open world crime drama for PlayStation 4, and a slew of job listings spotted earlier today have reinforced that. The recruitment advertisements – promoting a range of different positions – each note that successful applicants will be put to work on a "top secret, unannounced and super interesting project”. Furthermore, the programmer roles add that the studio is "looking to push the boundaries of cutting edge hardware”.

Feel free to put two and two together in the comments section below.
