A trio of emblems registered by writer Take-Two signifies that remasters of Mafia and Mafia 2 could also be in improvement.
Two of the purposes filed lately by Take-Two relate to the names of Mafia and Mafia 2 in addition to the logos related to these titles. The date on the purposes is August 2nd, which is odd contemplating that neither of those properties essentially must be trademarked in accordance with the 10-year timeframe utilized to such trademarked properties. Naturally, this has led some to consider that the Take-Two crew have one thing else deliberate.
The different trademark is much more attention-grabbing. It’s additionally for the phrase “Mafia,” however the stylized textual content of the phrase means that it isn’t associated to any of the Mafia video games we have seen thus far (not less than indirectly).
Theories abound concerning that third trademark. Some say that it might level to a attainable sequel, whereas others speculate that it may be the textual content used for a possible assortment of the primary two (and perhaps the third) Mafia recreation. In this occasion, although, it is fully attainable that the trademark is solely a precaution that Take-Two has taken to be able to hold some future choices open.
We’d actually welcome a remaster (and even remake) of the unique Mafia recreation because it’s arguably the very best recreation that captures that romanticized ’20s/’30s period of organized crime. Mafia 2 can be an unbelievable expertise in its personal proper and has held up fairly nicely over time. While Mafia 3 was a fairly enjoyable recreation with some unbelievable moments, it did not fairly seize the spirit and taste of the primary two video games within the collection.
Between this and the lately filed score approval for Red Dead Redemption 2, although, it seems that we could also be coming into the season of official paperwork spoiling some upcoming video games.
