Speaking on the founding of Hangar 13, which was built to bring up Mafia, creative director Haden Blackman told GameSpot: “I wanted to build games that really tried to push the notion that the player’s co-author in the experience. We have that tagline for Hanger 13, which every player’s story is unique. That’s definitely something we want to try and push for everything that we do.”
Mafia 3 Trailer:
Mafia 3 ‘The Heist’ trailer follows the main character Lincoln Clay who is working with the Italian mob to rob the Federal Reserve.

“1968 was such an interesting time on so many levels, and it all comes out in the music, the kind of crush of cultures and philosophies and ideals all comes out in the music,” Blackman explained. “You’ve got that pop thing going on, the crooner still going on, you’ve got RnB really exploding, then you’ve got the hard rock stuff and the British invasion. It’s all colliding at this time, and everybody is stealing from each other regarding musical ideas, and the music starts to really evolve rapidly. For us, it was important we have that wide swipe of music.”
