Players have never forgotten the Mafia series, despite the fact that over the years it has lost part of its interest, an interest that the fourth chapter is called upon to recover. After Mafia Definitive Edition, fans await the new episode of the franchise, and now there are some reports regarding the setting of Mafia 4 which will take the players outside of America. Check out the complete details below.
Mafia 4 Setting Will Be Outside America – Report
After the confirmation that there will be a Mafia 4, new and interesting rumors are arriving about the plot and above all the setting of the game, which could take us outside the borders of America.
According to reports, in fact, in recent days some job advertisements have appeared online which suggest that the next game in the Mafia series will be set in completely new locations.
Hangar 13 has started looking for senior 3D environment artists who focus on “organic art & landscapes, Unreal engine.” The announcement goes on to say that the artist will need to be able to create “assets for a AAA game in a large-scale virtual environment with the focus on organic models.”
The announcement continues: “He/she defines, develops, and maintains high-end-run game environments and contributes to the new Mafia franchise game.” Therefore, it seems confirmed that these people will be hired to work on a game in the Mafia series for sure.
However, the keywords of the discussion are two, namely “organic models.” If Mafia 4 were set in a single city, there probably wouldn’t be as much focus on creating organic 3D models.
Fans of the game therefore speculate that it will be a prequel set in Sicily and will show the rise of the mafia. One comment notes that the game may be set during “the mafia’s dog days, when they were ruthlessly hunted by a troop of elite soldiers on orders of Benito Musolini.”
At the moment we have no official confirmation, so we just have to wait for good news from 2K. It is also true that the studio of Mafia is preparing for the future with a fourth chapter, but probably also a fifth episode, as hinted a few weeks ago.
