In 2020 2K and Hangar 13 released the impressive Mafia: Definitive Edition remake, which brought the 2002 classic into the modern era. With the studio and development led by industry veteran Haden Blackman this week comes word that he has left the studio to "pursue his passion at a new endeavor", and Kotaku is reporting that Hangar 13 is now working on a new game in the series.

One that will be a prequel to the trilogy, with development led by Hangar 13's UK-based studio. Nick Baynes, the Studio Head of Hangar 13 in the region is taking over as Studio Head of Hangar 13 - which covers a range of global offices. Although the report cites sources close to the project, and is in no way a confirmation from 2K that Mafia is coming back, it's said to be very early in development and is being created using Unreal Engine 5.

The report goes on to state that Hangar 13 has struggled to create new IPs in recent years, one of which was set to be a loot-based action-RPG, with this new Mafia game being the latest focus for the studio. If it is indeed a prequel it could need to be set before the first game's setting of 1930 - which doesn't leave much room in the way of mob business.
