This is the best news I've heard for a long time, I absolutely loved Mafia and I knew Illusion Softworks would do a sequel. This is awesome!

w00t!!!!!

This makes my day. I love Mafia so much. Seriously, I am really, really happy now. More happy than I should be. I've been waiting and hoping for this since the day I finished Mafia. And the day I finished it for the 4th time. etc.


Now if only Interplay would come to their senses about Fallout 3....

Now let's not get our moods down shall we? Being a Fallout fan, I know the news about Black Isle Studios is sad but we can try to look forward to other great games.

Ummm... they have maybe a 30-40 year window for a sequal to be made.
Tommy died sure - but as an elderly man. The killers drove up in a mustang for ***** sake.

He quit the mafia after the 1st game ended; that was the whole point. I doubt Tommy will be the main character of the sequel.

In other news, who wants to speculate on the era Mafia 2 will be set in? 60s? 50s? I can't wait to see the car models.

If they got into the 60's era that would be great.

Almost the only complaint I ever heard about Mafia (besides the race mission) was how slow the cars were. It would be nice to shut those people up and maybe get to drive a muscle car too.

I think it would be cool basing Mafia 2 on the Russian Mafia, and KGB involvement, etc. It has lots of potential, and hell, it can't be similar to the first Mafia. Yes it was good, but I mean in terms of theme, story, etc.

I doubt Illusion would do that. They've done nothing but quality PC titles, they won't betray us and start making console crap. Anyway, Mafia was a brilliant game, i cannt wait for #2!

Best news I've heard all day. I really liked the free ride extreme that was unlocked after you'd beaten the main game. It was great fun getting some really fast unusual cars complete with ramps to burn up the city with.

I hope you know that Mafia is coming out for PS2 and Xbox.And the graphics on the console versions look like crap.Just like how MP2 looked like compared to the pc version and console version.CRAP!Deus Ex was my favorite game.But DX2 was a huge disappointed.Shall I mention Halo?!?!?!Again the console market is pwning the pc market.Its sad,but its true.But i do hope that Microsoft doesnt try to make it exclusive to the Xbox and make pc ppl wait.Like how they done with some of the Star Wars games.

my 2 cents!

I hope it's set in the 50s and they license all sorts of cool 50s songs. That would be rad. Or GTA could do this and I would be happy.

I think their games feel authentic- just like WW2 SMGs shouldn't be accurate. And yes, I hope Illusin will stay faithful with their root as PC game dev

Thanks for good news

Maybe the story will still be in the same time period but told from the perspective of someone in Morello's gang and Salieri is the bad guy this time kind of like how the half life expansion packs were interwoven with the first Black Mesa story. It's going to be interesting to see how they pull off a story as good as the first and not repeat many missions.

I assume they're going to use the ls3d engine again but maybe it will be beefed up to look as good as City17 in half life 2. Can't wait.

Yeah - I agree. It was very annoying hearing people complain about the slow cars though.


And multiplayer.... I hope it does not have any multiplayer. I'd rather they spend all their time making an excellent single player experience.
(why oh why does everything just "have" to have multiplayer)

I for one didn't have a problem with the "slow" cars in Mafia. In fact, the change of pace made for a refreshing change from the usual GTA style rampages. Furthermore, as you progress through the game you start to get faster and better cars, so I don't understand why the "slow" cars pose any problems.

This is in fact the sequel to the best (single player) game of all time. Cant wait. Mafia pwns all other game in single player mode. Cant wait to see what Mafia 2 brings to the table, multiplayer or not, who cares with this one.
