In celebration of the franchise’s 20th anniversary, 2K Games and Hanger 13 have come together to announce that a whole new Mafia title is now under development. Breaking the news over on the studio’s blog post, Hanger 13 general manager Roman Hladík said “I’m happy to confirm we’ve started work on an all-new Mafia project! While it’s a few years away and we can’t share anything more right now, we’re really excited to keep working on this beloved franchise and to entertain our players with new stories.”

As you can tell, details revolving around the new installment are kept largely under wraps by 2K for now, but a previous report from Kotaku earlier this year mentioned a rumor of a Mafia prequel that’ll be set in Italy and also run on Epic GamesUnreal Engine 5. Of course, neither 2K nor Hanger 13 have confirmed any of these rumors or even commented on them, so fans of the Mafia franchise would be better off waiting for more official announcements from the publisher and developer. Given how early the game is in development right now, there’ll definitely be plenty of information to come in the future.

Elsewhere in gaming, The Dark Pictures Anthology‘s season one finale The Devil In Me is arriving this November.
