Mafia 2 Delayed

2K Czech's old-timey gangster game sequel Mafia 2 won't be hitting its projected release window either, as publisher Take-Two today revealed that the game--once expected by July-- is now slated to arrive between August 1 and October 31, 2010. That period correlates to the fourth quarter of Take Two's current fiscal year--the same time that L.A. Noire, Max Payne 3 and Civilization V are due--with Mafia 2 in development for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. As for why Mafia 2 was delayed, Take-Two CEO Ben Feder cited a focus on quality and the need for more development time.

However, the company also noted that its "guidance reflects the potential movement of one of these titles into fiscal 2011," which spans November 2011 - October 2012.

    this game will be a classic, no doubt about it... if its just half as good as the first one, it will be epic!

      Loved the first one but that race... man, that race...
      took me hours to complete!

      They released a patch to make it easier if I remember correctly.

        I think it gave you the option to skip it altogether after three tries or something like that. I personally didn't find it so bad, the key for me seemed to be not going too fast and just stay in control and with the pack. Then towards the very end just gun it. So long ago though, I could definitely be making that up. Great game though.

          They added the skip option in a patch. I didn't have a problem with it, but then again I was using my trusty Sidewinder Precision Pro.
