Mafia 4 would take place 30 years before the events of the first opus: details emerge




Mafia is set in the 1930s, between the fall of 1930 through to the end of 1938, during the later part of Prohibition, which ended in 1933. The game is set in the fictional American city of Lost Heaven (loosely based on New York City, Philadelphia and Chicago of the same time period).

The player takes the role of taxi driver Thomas "Tommy" Angelo, who, while trying to make a living on the streets of Lost Heaven as a taxi cab driver, unexpectedly and unwillingly becomes involved in organized crime as a driver and enforcer for the Salieri crime family, led by Don Ennio Salieri.

Mafia 4 would take place 30 years before the events of the first opus: details emerge

We often hear about Mafia lately. And for good reason: a new opus is in development at Hangar 13. Moreover, the latest XboxEra podcast gives us some small details on the one that will be called Mafia 4 by default .

If the words of informant Nick Baker were to prove true, the new opus of the franchise could be a prequel to the very first game,  Mafia: The City of Lost Heaven , released in 2002.

A plot set 30 years before  Mafia

According to Nick Baker's sources, this  Mafia 4  would share a multitude of points with the first two games of the license. Less well received,  Mafia 3  seems to want to be forgotten by the teams.

In  Mafia 4 , one would play the young Ennio Salieri during his youth in Sicily at the dawn of the 20th century. The same Ennio Salieri who, 30 years later, will be called "Don" by our protagonist in  Mafia  first of the name.

In terms of structure, Hangar 13 would also depart from the too open dimension of  Mafia 3  to reconnect with the certain interventionism of the first two opuses. The idea being not to dilute the story in a world that is too big – where, moreover, there has never been much to do.

But many things can still change. From what we know,  Mafia 4  is only in its early stages of development. On the other hand, it would be one of the many games to already adopt the Unreal Engine 5 engine .
