If you thought we had come out the other side of delays related to COVID-19, you might want to think again. Mafia: Definitive Edition, which was originally scheduled to launch next month, has been delayed to 25th September 2020. Developer Hangar 13 cites the ongoing coronavirus pandemic as the reason why, but it hopes to make up for the delay with an extended look at the remake on 22nd July.
Taking to Twitter, the studio said: "Though we'd originally planned to release the game one month earlier on 28th August, 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." Hangar 13 goes on to state that it is committed to creating a worthy remake of the 2002 classic with many members of the team credited with working on the original title.
