Mafia 4 is set in Sicily, following the story of Don Salieri, according to the leak
We started to hear several rumors around an upcoming Mafia title recently, shortly after Hangar 13 head Hayden Blackman left the studio. Now we have even more information about the story and setting of Mafia 4thanks to a credible insider.
The Mafia series was introduced to the world with groundbreaking gameplay and story in 2002. The game has always been remembered as a masterpiece of storytelling in the world of organized crime. However, the consequences of Mafia could never come close to the original version.

In 2021, Hangar 13 and 2K Games released a remake of the original Mafiaand even though it was technically amazing, the developers still failed to revive the same great vibe of the original version due to the change of some of the brilliant lines of character dialogue, especially the protagonist.
However, Hangar 13’s next project already looks interesting if the rumors turn out to be true!
Mafia 4 is supposed to represent Cosa Nostra back in Italy
According to a recent podcast by XboxErafeaturing Shpeshal Nick, a well-known insider who is best known for his Microsoft-related leaks, Mafia 4 is meant to be a prequel to the original franchise release. According to information provided by Nick, the game is supposed to cover Don Salieri’s life in Sicily and his rise to power in the late 19’s and early 20’s.
It’s unclear whether Don Salieri himself would be the protagonist or not, but it already sounds interesting as we haven’t had a big budget game depicting Sicily and the birth of organized crime in its homeland!
