Amazon, Best Buy and GameStop may have outed the release date for Mafia 3 as each have it slated for an April release.

According to an image taken at a Best Buy store and sent to IGN, the game is available for pre-order with a release date set for April 26.

The pre-order pages on Amazon and GameStop list April 26 as well. We took a screengrabs of the pages just in case the date is removed.

When contacted for comment, 2K Games told IGN Mafia 3 was slated for release in calendar 2016 during Take-Two’s “fiscal year 2017.”

“No official release date has been announced at this time. It is common practice for retailers to list placeholder dates before an official release date has been announced,” read the statement.

If April 26 is a placeholder date, then all three retailers are on the same page. Plus, Take-Two’s FY17 begins on April 1. Take that however you wish.

Mafia 3 will be released on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. You can watch the latest gameplay trailer through here.
