It was just revealed hours ago and right on time, leaks have begun popping out of nowhere.
First was the confirmation of the first game in Mafia: Definitive Edition and now, Mafia II: Definitive Edition has received a store listing from the Microsoft Store pointing to a release on May 19, the same day of the supposed full announcement from 2K.
As far as “Definitive Editions” go, this release will include all DLC’s but unfortunately, Mafia II will be a remaster rather than a full blown remake. The game description can be seen below:
