The latest leak states that Mafia 4 game is currently in development and apparently, it's set in Las Vegas and it follows a dirty cop Hain who gets involved in a gambling scam.
The next Mafia game is yet to be announced by the publisher 2K Games but it's safe to assume that one is in development right now, despite the disappointing Mafia 3. Today, we have first details about the game thanks to a leak from Reddit.
Keep in mind that there is not much in this leak, it's basically a couple of information, which could mean that the leak is indeed legit. You want to stay away from those big detailed lists when it comes to leaks and rumours.
Anyway, the leaker states that he has a close relative who works at ESRB for Canada, reviewing text scripts from games. Most properties are in codenames but being an avid gamer, the person managed to figure out it's a script from a Mafia game.
It's codenamed Sam Boyd 4, which they believe to be Mafia 4. The setting of the game is codenamed Saint Fortuna, which is Las Vegas and Lost Haven is also included. The story will revolve over multiple time periods.
The main protagonist of the game is a dirty cop named Hain who gets involved in a gambling scam early on. Additionally, the game is very branching in terms of who you want Hain to be, crackdown in the mob or join them.
The game also has a secondary protagonist, who is a judge in Lost Haven whose missions will consist of trials of mobsters, career spans from the 40s to 80s.
Sounds plausible indeed, but until officially announced, please take these deets with a grain of salt, since this is just a Reddit leak and nothing more.
