Mafia 3 is real.
2K has just announced that Mafia 3 will be fully revealed at gamescom 2015 in just a few days.
The publisher sent an email confirming that the first trailer will go live Wednesday, August 5 at precisely 8am ET, 1pm BST. In addition to the trailer, the game will be shown to the press behind-closed-doors at the show.
The announcement may come as a surprise to some, but those of you following the series diligently will know that 2K recently registered domain names for it, which added more credence to actor Rick Pasqualone's little Twitter tease.
From the casting call that was leaked back in 2014, we know that it will be set in or around Louisiana/ New Orleans.
