2K Czech Prepping Mafia III For Next-Gen
This could be one of the earliest confirmations of a next-generation title.
According to Eurogamer, 2K Czech is currently cranking away on Mafia III, which is in development for "the PlayStation 4 and next Xbox."
Interestingly enough, it was originally scheduled to be a launch title for next-gen consoles, but this is currently "unlikely" as they've suffered a few cutbacks in recent years. They're staffing up now, though, as they're seeking 13 new employees to help them on the project; they want artists, programmers, designers, etc. Last we heard of 2K Czech is that they were supposedly assisting with Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto V, but Rockstar quickly debunked that rumor.
However, much like GTA, Mafia is an open-world title that has a heavy focus on crime...or in this case, specifically trenchcoat mafia crime. If you're bored, you might want to check out the decent Mafia II.
