Mafia: Definitive Edition Delayed

This tweet announces a delay to the release of the Mafia: Definitive Edition, saying the open-world crime remake is now due on September 25th. This is about a month later than previously planned, and they explain the setback is due to COVID-19. They promise an extended look at gameplay on July 22nd, and for now offer a Gameplay Reveal Trailer with just a glimpse of what to expect. Here's word:
Mafia: Definitive Edition will now release worldwide on September 25. Though we'd originally planned to release the game one month earlier on August 28, finalizing everything in time for that lunch date has become increasingly challenging due to the ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic, and last thing we want to do is compromise the quality of the experience.

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.

All that said, we know you're anxious to see more. That's why we're thrilled to give you an extended look at Mafia: Definitive Edition's gameplay in just 2 weeks on July 22. Be sure to follow @MafiaGame on Twitter to see a brand new 15 second teaser now, and visit for more information about the entire Mafia: Trilogy.

We want to express our heartfelt thanks to you for watching our narrative trailer, playing the definitive editions of Mafia II and III, and supporting us as we continue building the definitive organized crime saga. We look forward to showing you more on July 22.
