What does this mean for Mafia 3?
2K Czech, the studio where Mafia 3 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One was allegedly being developed, is being restructured and relocated, 2K Games has confirmed, reports Eurogamer.
“We have relocated and consolidated our 2K Czech team from our Prague facility to centralise resources in our location in Brno. Additionally, we are transferring some development resources from Prague and Brno to 2K headquarters in Novato, CA,” said 2K.
“This transition will both strengthen the integration of the 2K Czech team with our award winning development teams, and better align cross-functional business practices. As part of this realignment, we are adjusting our staffing levels, resulting in the elimination of some positions.”
The studio is expected to close down completely in a few months; this is not, incidentally, the first time that the development of Mafia 3, which was originally intended to be a launch title for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, has run into snags.
It is not known what this means for the development of the elusive title. Stay tuned to GamingBolt for more information.
