Is Mafia 3 Coming Out in April

Is Mafia 3 Coming Out in April?

Richard Walker

According to pre-order cards hanging up at various US retailers including GameStop and Best Buy, Mafia III is coming out on 26th April 2016. It's the second release date in as many days, with XBA sent an image of a reservation card for Homefront: The Revolution with a 17th May 2016 launch date.

IGN was sent a picture of the pre-order card, which clearly shows the April release date. Of course, like the leaked Homefront: The Revolution date, this date could also be placeholder, and as we've seen little of Mafia III since its big reveal at Gamescom 2015. Get our first look preview here.

2K Games responded to the leaked pre-order card and the supposed release date, with the following statement:

"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."

Look out for a Mafia III interview on the site soon.

  • Mighty No. 9 and PvZ: GW2 for Febuary. The Division for March. April this, and May Homefront 2. 2016 has nice pacing for games I wanna play.
  • Same day as uncharted. Sounds legit but best to wait until official confirmation
  • Id be VERY surprised if this release date is true. Its only a guess by th retailer to get more pre-orders. I think 2k would of shown a bit more of it by now if it was that close to release
  • Look forward this game. :))
  • Would be awesome if it did. Looking forward to it even if it isn't set in the time era i'd like it to be in. still have high hopes
  • Looking forward to this especially with living in Louisiana I can't wait to look at this interpretation of New Orleans
  • @3 seriously man i just seen you on another post dismissing release dates. From what you can see from the Alpha gameplay footage IGN had a couple of weeks back the game looks great and you could say close to the finished product. Graphics look great, looks like it runs smoothly and action seems really good.
  • Day one for sure. Game Looks amazing and I really like Tarantino vibe of the trailer.
  • Yeah!! I played the first one. It was a pretty fun game. I must have liked it enough because I beat it. It's like Grand Theft Auto but in the old days.
