After Haden Blackman, the current head of Hangar 13, leaves the studio (and this was confirmed by 2K Games, ie Take-Two), something could start on the team.
The Kotaku He wrote that Hangar 13 is already working on a new mafia game in the early stages of development. Take-Two/2K confirmed to PCGamer that there have been many changes in the management of Hangar 13. Blackman left the company to start something new. The company is grateful to him for setting up the studio and building a team in Novato and Brighton as well as the Czech team.
There are many mafia games and a group associated with his name. What he helped build will be transferred to the studio over the next few years, and the best he wanted from his previous job. Blackman’s successor will be Nick Baines, who joined in 2018. He has so far been the founder and head of Brighton’s office. Take-Two congratulates Pines on his promotion, and while change brings challenges, it can also create new opportunities and successes. The company is confident that the studio is in good hands and therefore there will be no complaints about their projects. And 2K/Take-Two is behind Hangar 13 in full force.
But it’s not just Blackman who recently left the leadership of Hangar 13. Chief Operating Officer Matthew Urban has also resigned, if we are to believe LinkedIn: Sometime in May of this year he finished working in the studio and wrote so much about how amazing the trip there was to work there, and can’t wait to see what lies ahead next. Hence, it will not be easy for the studio to get up.
Mafia 3, which was released in 2016, wasn’t much of a breakthrough and after that, Hangar 13 went through major redundancies in 2018. It also had a multiplayer superhero game, a multi-year development and $53 million (~19.2 billion) ) because it was simply deleted. After that, Kotaku, who only cites one source, is still surprised to write that the studio is back in the mafia. The trilogy is said to be a precursor to the fourth part and … you can yawn, but the Mafia 3 engine will not be used by Hangar 13, but the Unreal Engine 5 will be published.
of course it is no official.
