Mafia III is a third-person shooter video game and the third installment in the Mafia Series, being a sequel to Mafia: The City of Lost Heaven and Mafia II. The game is developed by Hangar 13 and published by 2K Games, and was released on October 7, 2016 for PC, Playstation 4, and Xbox One. Mafia III was officially announced in July 2015, with the first trailer unveiled on August 5, 2015. The game takes place in 1968 in New Bordeaux, with the player assuming the role of Lincoln Clay.

Synopsis

It's 1968 and the rules have changed. After years of combat in Vietnam, Lincoln Clay knows this truth: Family isn't who you're born with, it's who you die for. Now back home in New Bordeaux, Lincoln is set on escaping a criminal past. But when his surrogate family, the Black Mob, is betrayed and wiped out by the Italian Mafia, Lincoln blazes a path of revenge and redemption through the Mafioso responsible. It will take more than a few friends to make it in this new world. Intense gun fights, visceral hand-to-hand combat, white knuckle driving, and street smarts will all be needed. But with the right crew, tough decisions, and some dirty hands, it's possible to make it to the top of the city's underworld. It's time to create a new family on the ashes of the old. Joining him are his underbosses Cassandra, Thomas Burke, and Vito Scaletta.

Development

Take 2's Strauss Zelnick revealed in late December 2010 that Mafia III was currently in the making and would be released sometime within the next few years. As of Spring 2012, no further information had been released but a rumor quoted that "2K Czech's next game, Mafia III, has apparently just gone into full development after a year of thorough pre-production, in which the game's concepts and tech were stripped back to basics and rebuilt." In January 2015, Vito Scaletta's voice actor, Rick Pasqualone, hinted at the possible reveal of Mafia III when asked by fans, saying that he "might have some exciting Mafia news very soon."

Mafia III was officially announced in July 2015, with an announcement trailer released on August 5, 2015. A story trailer was released on April 19, 2016, with many more trailers, interviews, and behind-the-scenes videos to follow.
