Hangar 13 had its open world multiplayer superhero game, codenamed Volt, cancelled in late 2021, but the studio does have other irons in the first. Last year, the developer confirmed that it was working on a new Mafia game, and while details on the title remain scant – what with it not even having been formally unveiled just yet – some behind-the-scenes tidbits may have emerged courtesy of a new job ad.

Hangar 13 currently has a listing for the position of Tools Engineer up on LinkedIn, the developer has said that it’s currently working on an unannounced AAA multiplatform game that is being developed using Unreal Engine 5. The title is said to be in pre-production at the moment.

The name of the project is obviously not mentioned, but if it does turn out to be Mafia 4, it will be an interesting development, seeing as the likes of both Mafia 3 and Mafia: Definitive Edition were built on internal proprietary engines.

Of course, leaks have also claimed that Hangar 13 is currently also working on Top Spin 5, which is scheduled to release before the new Mafia game, so there’s a chance that that’s the game being referred to in this job ad.

As for the next Mafia, reports have claimed that it will be set in Sicily and serve a prequel to the first game, with Don Salieri – a key character from the original Mafia – serving as the protagonist.

Reportedly, Hangar 13 is also looking to get a fifth Mafia game greenlit by publisher 2K.
