The Mafia series will continue with Mafia 4, which is supposedly already in the works. Mafia 4 is the much-demanded and highly anticipated sequel to Mafia 3. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that a lot of people are desperate for a new Mafia game given that the most recent one, Mafia 3, was published in 2017 and wasn’t quite what we had hoped it would be.
It is now completely official that Mafia 4 is now in the process of being developed. This information was divulged by Roman Hladik of Hanger 13 through a question and answer session hosted on the official Mafia website. He has not divulged any other information about the game, other than the fact that it is still “a few years away.”
What do we know about the game?
Mafia 4 has been given the codename Nero, and it is speculated that the upcoming Mafia game will be powered by Unreal Engine 5. Mafia 4 will be a prequel that focuses on the emergence of the Salieri family, which is sure to make a lot of fans pleased. Additionally, the game’s story will bring us back to the game’s roots, which will make a lot of fans happy.
New leaks reveal that you will play the role of Salieri, the head of the family in which you begin your career as a criminal in the original Mafia, and the name Salieri is significant because it is the name of the family in which you begin your career.
Mafia 4 will take place in Sicily between the years 1890 and 1920, as stated by XboxEra co-founder Nick Baker in a recent edition of the XboxEra podcast. Since the Salieris were born in Italy, this indicates that the game will take place in Sicily around that time period.
The first two films in The Godfather trilogy, and particularly The Godfather 2, come to mind almost immediately when presented with such a scene. This one featured aspects of a prequel and followed the ascent of Don Corleone, first in Italy and then in the United States. It’s possible that the Mafia is heading in the same direction.
