If you didn't know, in Mafia 2 Vito's family had a pizzeria, but it was cut during the development.





I was going through some videos about Mafia 2 when I bumbed into this video in which Jack Scalici may have been talking about the pizzeria.

What do you think about it? Is it a coincidence that he brings up pizza delivery as an example? Or he clearly points at this cut content?

I believe that it's just another BS reason why we can't have more content in Mafia 2. When the development of the game was transferred over to 2K Games, they were essentially given an incomplete game. The problem is, the original development team was going to add a lot more to the game then what ended up being Mafia 2. After the transition, they did not have enough time to add everything that was originally planned, so they decided to cancel everything that was not important to the story, and just finish what they already had built (and they still had to move back the release date four times to accommodate this). But when asked about cut content, they never admit the actual reason why it was cut, and instead decide to lie, or give BS "developer" reasons why it was cut, like "wiseguys don't use the subway", or "why would you want to BUY a car when you can STEAL one for FREE?". That clip you posted is an excellent example of that. They don't give a legitimate reason, they just give you excuses so they can weasel out of actually giving a reason. It would be one thing if they actually told the truth, but when they try to mislead you with excuses for why they did it, that just makes them look even more bad, and they already looked really bad considering we were given a game with a lot of removed content.

Hope one day that most of the content that was cut can be restored through mods. We already have access to the scrapped melee weapons, a few cut locations, and some animations through the Friends for Life mod. Still can't believe though that they said when asked about the melee weapons that THEY SOLELY SHOWCASED IN 2009, "if you don't want to use guns, you can use your fists".Mad Though in the comment section of the video that shows the melee weapons, one of the devs came clean and said it was due to time constraints.

It would be cool if we could restore some scrapped missions like from the WW2 chapter because that did feel pretty incomplete since it was so limited, or taking Vito's girlfriend Monique to the theater.
