2K have delayed the release of their Mafia remaster due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the publisher has announced.
“Though we’d originally planned to release the game one month earlier on August 28, 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,” read a statement from the publisher.
“From the beginning, this has been a passion project for us. Many of our developers helped create the original Mafia, and all of us are committed to crafting an updated experience worthy of that timeless classic. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we make Mafia: Definitive Edition the very best it can be for all of our fans worldwide.”
To help tide fans over until the game’s launch later this year, an extended gameplay trailer will be released on 22 July.
Mafia: Definitive Edition is out 25 September on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
