Family. Power. Respect. Today we learned why the official Mafia Twitter account tweeted out those three words over the past couple of days, as 2K released a teaser trailer for Mafia: Trilogy. Update: A listing on the Xbox Marketplace for Mafia: Definitive Edition has appeared, complete with screenshots and an August 28 release date.
With a grand reveal planned for May 19, there’s not a lot of information in the teaser trailer for Mafia: Trilogy. We’ve got logos for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Steam, and the Epic Games Store, so we know what platforms the collection is coming to. As far as how much of a remaster the games are getting, we’ll have to wait until next Tuesday to find out.
Update 5/13 12:10 PM: A listing for Mafia: Definitive Edition has appeared on the Xbox Marketplace. Here’s the official description, which mentions Mafia II and Mafia III definitive editions as well.
