<p>Mafia celebrates its 20th anniversary today, and in a new blog post by Hanger 13, the principal minds behind the series reflect on its creation and history while also teasing what’s next.</p>

<p>Longtime Mafia designers Roman Hladík (general manager), Tomáš Hřebíček (head of production/media director), and Alex Cox (game director) sat down to discuss Mafia’s entire history and their most cherished memories of the franchise.

<p>Hřebíček writes:&nbsp;</p>

“I'm happy to confirm we've started work on an all-new Mafia project! While it's a few years away and we can't share anything more right now, we're really excited to keep working on this beloved franchise and to entertain our players with new stories.”

<p>“A few years away” is a long time to wait, especially since the last mainline entry, <a href="https://www.gameinformer.com/games/mafia_iii/b/xboxone/archive/2016/10/12/mafia-iii-review.aspx" target="_blank">Mafia III</a>, is approaching&nbsp;six years old, launching in October 2016. In 2020, Hanger 13 released enhanced remasters of all three games, the most substantial being a complete remake of the original dubbed <a href="https://www.gameinformer.com/review/mafia-definitive-edition/mafia-definitive-edition-review-loyal-to-a-fault" target="_blank">Mafia: Definitive Edition</a>.&nbsp;</p>
