The Godfather Release Date Nailed Down

1

After months of maintaining a non-specific "February 2009" release date, Electronic Arts today confirmed the North American release of its action game sequel The Godfather 2 will ship February 24.

Developed by EA Redwood Stores, The Godfather 2 keeps the open-world action gameplay from the first game, while adding a "Don's View" strategy meta-game on top of it allowing for gang control, planning of hits and territory defense among other things.

The Godfather 2 will be released simultaneously for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. For more, check out our preview of the game.

    I wasn't interested in the first one, though it seemed okay. But I do want to try this one out. Don's View looks cool (not too gimmicky) and I like the idea of going crazy in Cuba.

    anybody play the first one?
