According to a latest report by Eurogamer.cz, Mafia 3 is being produced for the PS4 and Xbox 720. Yes, the next-gen consoles of Sony and Microsoft. It appears that they are going to bypass the PS3 and Xbox 360 altogether which is a but weird considering the solid install base is helpful for game sales.
The game was originally in development for the current gen consoles but was pushed back to next-gen due to unmentioned reasons. We believe its probably because the project is too ambitious considering Mafia 2 was quite a good looking game.
It appears that the next-gen consoles will arrive in 2013 as the game is also slated to launch in 2013. Mafia was a PC franchise which was shifted to consoles this gen and it looks like it will stay that way for a long time.
