Mafia: Definitive Edition leaks via store page, and it’s a full remake – not a remaster

2K has teased news on an updated Mafia trilogy release today, and while the publisher plans to make its official announcements next week, an early store listing has provided us with a load of details on the modernised series, right down to the Mafia: Definitive Edition release date. The first game is coming back with not just a remaster, but a full-on remake, and Mafia II: Definitive Edition is getting some massive improvements, too.

Mafia: Definitive Edition is due to launch August 28, 2020, according to the Microsoft Store listing. The game has been “re-made from the ground up”, and the early screenshots – which you can see below – show it. The original Mafia is “faithfully recreated, with expanded story, gameplay and original score. This is the Mafia you remembered and much more.”

Mafia II: Definitive Edition is due to launch on May 19, 2020, according to its own leaked Microsoft Store page – the same day 2K had teased for its official announcement. This is billed in the description as a more straightforward remaster, and will include all the original DLC.

In case those store pages disappear, check out all the Mafia: Definitive Edition screenshots below – and have a look at the original game’s Steam page for comparison.

And here’s what the new Mafia II looks like – better than the original Steam release, certainly, but a bit less dramatic.
