2K Games will officially announce Mafia III on August 5 at 5:00 a.m. PT / 8:00 a.m. ET, the publisher announced.
“Mafia III is the next installment in the popular series known for immersing players into a world of organized crime through rich narrative storytelling and a beautifully crafted game world featuring period-accurate cars, music and fashion,” 2K said in an e-mail sent to press. “In addition to the announcement trailer, Mafia III will debut at gamescom with a behind-closed-doors presentation.”
The game is developed by Hangar 13, a new studio 2K opened in December 2014.
