Mafia 2 Summary
Does Mafia II make us an offer we can't refuse, or is it sleeping with the fishes? (PC, Xbox 360, PS3)
A casting call posted with the Actors Access network has been spotted, and its owner is looking for three actors with Italian and/or southern accents. The characters are all described as
Franklin, Tony and Mickey are all focused on their criminal enterprises. Not much has been heard about Mafia 3 and this casting call is for an 'untitled game' in the works.
2K Czech, developers of the Mafia series, are making some major changes to their infrastructure, moving their Prague office to Brno and shifting several developers over to the 2K headquarters in California.
Mafia developer 2K Czech has a "super interesting project" on the go as they hunt for a 'Lead Mission Designer' for a "top secret, unannounced" new triple-A game. Mafia 3 is said to be in production.
Apparently a new Mafioso instalment will make its bones on the next Xbox and PlayStation platform. The studio needs a "local champion" for their mission design goals on the hushed up project.
It seems 2K Czech are muscling in for their cut of the next-gen console pie, as the studio are busy with Mafia 3. It was to be a launch title but will likely miss that window, says a report.
Apparently 2K Czech are short staffed and need more made-men to pad the offices. Rumour has it the team were assisting Rockstar with GTA V, and being helped to 'grow Mafia' further.
A rumor has been circulating at the Game Developers Conference that Mafia II developer 2K Czech is working on the cinematic cutscenes of Grand Theft Auto V, and is prepping to develop Mafia III.
