Mafia: Definitive Edition has been delayed by a month, from August 28 to September 25.Developer Hangar 13 explains that the delay has been caused by difficulties caused by working amid the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. A statement says that “finalizing everything in time for that launch date has become increasingly challenging”, and “the last thing we want to do is compromise the quality of the experience.”
