The Mafia Trilogy has just been announced via Twitter, with players able to "live the life of a gangster across three distinct eras of organized crime in America."
There isn't too much to disseminate from the trailer: you listen to a guy talking about how he's done everything for his family and showing some cutscenes from separate Mafia games. It's a good teaser trailer, but it doesn't give me much to talk about. The music is nice, I guess?
This does match news from yesterday that Mafia 2 PS4 and Xbox One versions were found in Brazil, so I guess we can now officially confirm that it is going to be a release. We don't know if it's going to be a big remaster or the like, but we'll find out on May 19 at 12 PM EST, where they'll reveal more information here.
The Mafia Trilogy will be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Epic Games, and Steam presumably this year. The Mafia 2 listing also had Stadia so we may hear more about that and next generation consoles next week. Stay tuned for more details.
The Mafia series has always been highly respected for being good open world games interesting storylines. Still, while Mafia III wasn't the greatest game ever made, it wasn't a game devoid of effort either. Having all three bundled up with better graphics and fixes will help all three games out for sure, and it's going to be interesting looking over all three games that were developed over a fourteen-year period. Hopefully, this is a good remaster, but we'll see. Games that should be an easy slam-dunk (Warcraft 3: Reforged) are anything but, which is super depressing. If you're not going to make a good and faithful remaster, don't bother.
