Mafia II Loses Multiple Endings

1 min read


Up-coming crime underworld sandboxer Mafia II was going to have multiple endings. Was! That’s no longer the case though – as the endings have been whittled down to just one.

Speaking to IncGamers, Senior Producer Denby Grace said the other endings were just ok – and not “great’ like the one that’s been left.

"We had four multiple endings at one point in the game, and then we looked at it and we had one really outstanding great ending to end our story," said Grace. We worked on these things and we have our players that focus test [the game] and we found that people were just replaying and ultimately only felt satisfied when they got to the one GREAT ending."

"We just said ‘You know what? Let’s just ditch these other endings, this is the ending everyone wants’ and that’s one thing we’re happy with making that choice."

I’m pretty happy at their decision. I hardly have time to play many games these days, let alone replay them just to see different endings. If the remaining conclusion is anything like the one from the first game, it’ll be a fine bit of storytelling indeed.

    Unfortunately did not play the first one. Is it any good Geoffrey? Open world like GTA?
    I like the look of it so far, when is it being released?

    First was incredible. One of the better Sandbox games I’ve played. Open world, but much more story focused than GTA.

    Really hoping the second one hold up the original.

    As far as I know, it’s releasing in September.

    As a side note, the PC version of the original is available for close to nothing now – and i reckon it’s still worth playing.

    Mafia really was a great game, it deserved so much more attention than it got.

    As for the endings in Mafia 2, I’m starting to find that I prefer one good ending over multiple endings these days. Also, Mafia 1’s ending is one of my favorites of all time, just loved it.

    Mafia was great and I enjoyed it much more than GTA.
