Due to challenges stemming from COVID-19 pandemic, Mafia: Definitive Edition’s release date has shifted from August 28.

Mafia: Definitive Edition has been delayed to September 25, 2K Games announced today.

“Though we’d originally planned to release the game one month earlier on August 28, finalizing everything in time for that launch date has become increasingly challenging due to the ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic, and the last thing we want to do is compromise the quality of the experience,” said Hanger 13 in a statement.

“From the beginning, this has been a passion project for us. Many of our developers helped create the original Mafia, and all of us are committed to crafting an updated experience worthy of that timeless classic. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we make Mafia: Definitive Edition the very best it can be for all of our fans worldwide.”

A gameplay reveal trailer will be released on July 22.

Mafia: Definitive Edition will be released on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
