Mafia returns to sale after vanishing for five years

After five years of not being sold for download anywhere (and long being out-of-print on disc), the first Mafia has returned to sale.

Mafia 3’s Announcement Trailer Will Arrive August 5th

Last month a NeoGAF poster found that publisher 2K Games had pointed four domains at their own server: mafia3thegame.com, mafiaiiithegame.com, mafiathree.com, and mafiathreethegame.com. It was a baffling mystery that set alight the minds' of the world's greatest detectives and the games press. The clues were right in front of us all but what did they mean? Now we've discovered a second sign (via the Mafia…

Resisting The Obvious Quotes: Mafia Devs Semi-Shut Down

They might call it a "restructuring", but whatever word one applies to it, it's bad news for a venerable studio with a rich heritage. In this partial death, let them once again assume their true mantle. 2K Czech were and always shall be Illusion Softworks, creators of Hidden & Dangerous, Mafia and not enough else.
