The lights are on
Mafia II (shown) was a well-liked open world crime tale, and hopefully there is evidence that developer 2K Czech is continuing with its creation.
Connectedconsoles.com has reported a 2K Czech job listing for a senior game designer to "create designs for game systems and mechanics for the open world city environment." The listing also asks that the applicant has shipped a triple-A game title with a Metacritic rating of at least 80. Is this for Mafia III or perhaps even a new IP? Who knows.
The last we heard from 2K Czech they were letting employees go, so hopefully this is a sign of better times at the studio, as well as the continuation of the Mafia franchise.
