Just a few weeks ago, 2K announced their new studio in Novato, California, Hangar 13, which has been presumed to be working on the third installment in the Mafia series. By now, however, its pretty obvious that an announcement for Mafia III isn’t very far off, and if the voice actor of Vito from Mafia II is to be believed, that announcement is coming “very soon”.
Rick Pasqualone, the voice actor of Vito, recently made a remark to a Twitter follower of his that he’ll have Mafia news “very soon”. In other Tweets he said the same thing to people asking about Mafia III, so if that doesn’t confirm the game’s imminent announcement I’m not sure what else would.
@Nataliebennette very nice. Thanks. Might have some Mafia news very soon!

Maybe we’ll seen an announcement for the game at PAX South which runs from January 23-25th in San Antonio, Texas. The game is rumored to be set in Louisiana, so maybe it would make sense to make the announcement in a Southern state, just for shits and giggles?
