According to a recent XboxEra podcast featuring Shpeshal Nick, a well-known insider best known for his Microsoft-related leaks, mafia 4 intended to be a prequel to the original version of the franchise. Based on the information provided by Nick, the game aims to cover the life of Don Salieri in Sicily and his rise to power in the late 19’s and early 20’s.
It remains unknown whether Don Salieri himself will be the protagonist or not, but it already sounds interesting since we haven’t had a big-budget game depicting Sicily and the birth of organized crime from its homeland yet!
