The release of Mafia 3 could be carried out possibly on 26 April, 2016. The US retailer Best Buy has declared a release date for the action game and already accepts pre-orders.

When Mafia 3 is going to appear? An answer to this question may be provided by US retailer Best Buy, while GameStop and Amazon have also listed the same date. The online magazine of IGN has posted a release poster of the pre-order, which was taken apparently in a branch of the company. This will be the April 26, 2016 which is mentioned as a release date for the highly anticipated action game. Publisher 2K Games has already made an opinion: “Mafia III will release in calendar 2016 during Take-Two Interactive’s fiscal year 2017. No official release date has been announced at this time. It is common practice for retailers to list placeholder dates before an official release date has been announced due to the requirements of their operating systems.”

Neither an acknowledgment nor a pure denial is given, in other words, but the news is still exciting. Mafia III revolves around New Orleans during the 1968 era. You play the role of Lincoln Clay – an African-American Vietnam veteran who fought in Vietnam and grew up in orphanages. Mafia III hopes to touch the feeling subjects of the racism and injustice that was common at the time. Compared to its predecessor, there will be significantly more and more diversified side quests. These include races in which players can earn cosmetic vehicle upgrades among others. IGN has published recently a nearly 12-minute gameplay video for Mafia 3 with brand new scenes that can be seen at the end of this article.
