Update: There was a delay gettingMafia 2: Definitive Edition to Steam, but both it and Mafia 3 Definitive Edition are now live. We can also expect all-new gameplay sequences and features powered by the same engine that was used to develop Mafia III.
Mafia: Definitive Edition, Mafia II: Definitive Edition, and Mafia III: Definition Edition are also available for purchase individually. You can also get it as part of the Mafia Trilogy, which still counts as a preorder, unlocking a new outfit, vehicle and weapon skin.

Mafia 3 had a great setting and first few hours, but it quickly devolved into a pretty standard open-world action game, so I doubt I'll be giving that a replay, but its predecessors are a lot more appealing.
