2K Games has today announced that the sequel to 2002’s Mafia – originally on PC and later ported to PS2 and Xbox – is in development for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Like the original, the sequel will feature a GTA-style mix of driving and on-foot action, set in a fictional city inspired by New York and Chicago at the height of mob power in the 1930s and 40s.

As the original Mafia was a big success, we are excited to leverage the power of next generation console technology to create an all-new experience, while embracing the elements that resonated with the previous game’s fans,” said Christoph Hartmann, President of 2K. “The ‘wow’ factor of Mafia 2 is definitely the benchmark-setting visual quality and action that you expect to see only in Hollywood movies.”

We hope to bring you more on Mafia 2 in the coming days.
