Mafia 4 Expected To Reboot The Franchise

Expert Verified By

Mafia 4 Will Be A Fresh Start For The Series!

Story Highlight
  • Hangar 13 seems to be preparing for a Mafia 4 reveal later this year.
  • The game is said to be a reboot of the franchise.
  • A leaker claims that it will be titled “Mafia.”

After recent excitement around Mafia 4, the title sadly did not appear at any major gaming showcases. Hangar 13 has been hard at work on this entry for quite a while, but it seems the team needs a few more months to unveil its work to audiences.

Meanwhile, rumors suggest that Mafia 4 is taking the series in a brand new direction. According to the latest reports, this entry could be a reboot for the IP.

Why it matters: Reboots for established IPs are always risky since they can offer vastly different tones and experiences. Fans are not always guaranteed to like the new direction.

MAFIA 4

According to famous leaker Kurakasis, Hangar 13 is still expected to announce the game before the end of 2024. However, the leaker could not confirm when or where this announcement would appear.

Another interesting point in the report is the fact that Hangar 13’s next game is titled “Mafia.” Since this is the same title as the first entry, the leaker believes that Hangar 13 is planning to reboot the IP.

Previously, the game was rumored to be a prequel for the franchise. While this could still be the case, the title suggests Mafia 4 will carve out a more distinct identity for itself, potentially introducing a new vibe and atmosphere.

In the past, franchises like God of War and Saints Row have taken a similar approach with their titles. While the latter was a reboot with the exact same title as the first entry, God of War was a direct sequel despite the implications of its title.

Therefore, there is still a chance Mafia 4 will go the same route as God of War.

Mafia: Definitive Edition in 2024

It is also important to note that, unlike most games, the Mafia franchise follows standalone stories. All three games are linked in one way or another, but players go through new settings, protagonists, and stories in each game.

Therefore, the idea of a reboot appears a bit doubtful. Still, Kurakasis has proven to be reliable in the past, so fans will have to wait for official details.
