    2K Games, a publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, today announced that it will publish Mafia 2, a sequel to the original Mafia title that sold more than two million copies worldwide and helped popularize the gangster genre. Featuring a deep mobster-driven narrative packed with both behind-the-wheel and on-foot action, Mafia 2 is the sequel fans have been clamoring for. The game is being developed by Illusion Softworks, developers of the original Mafia title, for next generation consoles and Games for Windows. Like the original Mafia title, Mafia 2 immerses players in the mob underworld of a fictitious late 1940's-early 1950's scenario. For more information on Mafia 2, please click here.

    YES!!! I loved Mafia, I still dig it out now and again to play it. Definately one of the best games of all time. I just hope the sequel will be as good, if not better.

    I think you are right, IIRC. And so was Soldier of Fortune 2.

    Together these 2 games are in my "dobry pět ". Another pivo, Zero? :)

    devoloper of mafia is czech (illusion software)

    mafia 2 was always as a rumor.
    after the first game out there have been a screenshot around the internet which tommy angelo is in a casino. most people thought that was from mafia 2.others thought its a secret place in mafia map but they couldnt find it and that screen stayed as a fake pic.
    people made a lot of fake news about mafia 2 even april jokes. IS always answered that question that they havent planned mafia 2. but in fact mafia 2 isnt the next sequel of first mafia game. it will be totally different. tommy angelo has died and he has a doughter not a son.anyway that was a short story of mafia2 rumors. there are 2 games in my life. mafia and fahrenheit. this one will be third for sure!

    Those screenies are FANTASTIC.... I cannot wait. This is a very rare situation, where I am actually excited about an upcoming game and will be ready to pay the "launch price" without hesitation.

    For those too lazy to follow the link:

    Get it! It's a true Top 5 game. And the later "chapters" of the game, esp. the Museum are amazing gameplay levels for both graphics and atmosphere.

    Guys....why does the main character look like a young version of Paulie?

    Maybe it's a prequel. I know it's the same city. The screenshots prove it, I recognise where all of those places are.
