I'm keeping a very close eye on Game Designer Conference 2015 this year. Remember, Mafia 2 originally premiered at GDC 2007, which featured work-in-progress development videos of the game, and presentations by game designers. Also, I have crosschecked the list of attending game designers, and two of them (Studio Head Haden Blackman and Executive Producer Andy Wilson) are from Hangar 13, which is the new studio that 2K Games launched, which also happens to be the studio that is rumored to be working on Mafia 3. So it is possible that they may do a repeat of GDC 07 and showcase the new Mafia game there. This is also in line with an announcement with Mafia 2 voice actor Rick Pasqualone (voice of Vito Scaletta), who said on Twitter that a casting call had been made for (what many assumed to be) Mafia 3, and that he expects news "very soon". However, all of this might just be a coincidence. If the GDC 15 thing is a red herring, then it may very well show up at E3 2015. Things are beginning to look pretty interesting.

Edit: I did look at the schedule more closely than before, and noted that they are scheduled to give out a presentation three times on March 4th, at 10:30am, 11:30am, and 12:45pm local time, respectively. It most likely won't include any trailers for the game or anything groundbreaking, since it is a workshop about team building, but it may make a passing reference to the game, or show physics demos of the game like they did at GDC '07. Again, any predictions made here are just speculation based on what I've noticed.

The description of the event reads as follows:

"Nurturing and maintaining a team's culture is hard but vitally important work, especially for a new studio building proprietary tech and an ambitious AAA game. In this talk, 2K's newest studio, Hangar 13, discusses the importance of team culture and the characteristics they look for when making hiring decisions."

"...an ambitious AAA game." They couldn't be talking about what I think they are talking about, could they?

If Mafia 3 is going to happen, then it will be announced this year. And it follows the timeline.

Recall that Mafia: COLH was released in 2002. Mafia 2 was announced in 2007 and released in 2010. Following that timeline, Mafia 3 will be announced this year and released in 2018 (hopefully sooner).

How many great historical-based 3rd person shooter games can you think of? Red Dead Redemption? There aren't many. The Mafia series can own this category.

How many great mobster-themed shooter games are there? Pretty much just the Mafia series.

IF Mafia III is going to happen then it will be announced when it is meant to be announced.

Please do not make statements without hard evidence. We do not know when it will be announced.
