Is Mafia III Set in Louisiana?
Written Wednesday, March 12, 2014 By Lee BradleyView author's profile
Take-Two is hiring actors to work on a game set in Louisiana and it could well be Mafia III.
Listings calling for actors to work on voice and motion capture for a Take-Two title have appeared on a job website, describing three gangster characters, all of whom were born in Louisiana. Franklin, Tony and Mickey are described in full below.
It’s not the first news we’ve heard relating to Mafia III this year. In January, it was revealed that 2K Czech had relocated resources and laid off a number of staff. The studio was rumoured to be working on Mafia III. Now it seems, if we’re not adding two and two together and getting five, Mafia III is still in production.
Take-Two and 2K are yet to respond.
Born in Louisiana, Mixed race - African American/Caucasian, Early 20s, 6', Bouncer's build - broad, not cut. An orphan in the racially segregated South who rises to criminal prominence after returning home to Louisiana from war. Having been an outsider to both white and black society, Franklin is fiercely loyal to those he considers "family." He is both street-smart and strong. Disciplined and imposing, confident yet guarded, Franklin knows how to get a job done at any cost...
Born in Louisiana, Italian, Early 30s, Thin, Immaculately dressed and groomed. A genius with numbers and statistics who runs sports betting operations in Louisiana. Tony is not your typical gangster. Meticulous and organized, Tony is more concerned about numbers and profit than people. On the surface, Tony appears quiet and socially awkward, but in reality he is more than capable of inflicting violence on anyone who disrupts his bottom line. Tony doesn't fear people; he simply does not understand or like them.
Born in Louisiana, Italian, Late Teens/Early 20s, Average build. A young street hustler who likes to run his mouth, Mickey likes to talk big on the streets, but when push comes to shove, he can't back it up. Mickey has a bad habit of taking credit for bigger jobs and making himself seem higher up in the criminal ladder than he really is. When confronted with this, he reverts back to the scared teenager he really is.
