A casting posted online reveals that Take Two Interactive is currently involved in making a next-gen game that is yet to be announced. From the details stripped off the popular casting network called Actors Access, the unannounced title seems to be Mafia III.
Take Two Interactive is in search for actors that will be chosen to voice in-game characters, as well be involved in motion capture work and have their faces scanned. The casting was posted on March 6th and is in search for three actors for three characters.
The first in-game character is named Franklin who is from Louisiana and is a mixed race of African American and Caucasian. As an orphan he was brought up in the racially segregated South. After coming home to Louisiana from war he quickly rises to “criminal prominence.” He is loyal to only those he considers family and is both street-smart and strong, disciplined and imposing, confident yet guarded.
The second character is called Tony who is also from Louisiana. However unlike Franklin, he is overly organized and is more concerned with money than people. It goes without saying that the greens alone get his loyalty. Tony is a quiet one and the actor chosen to play him must have an Italian accent.
The final character is called Mickey who is an Italian born in Louisiana. He is a young hustler who has a bad habit of taking credit for bigger jobs and making himself seem higher up in the criminal ladder than he really is. When confronted with this, he reverts back to the scared teenager he really is.
From the current state of affairs it seems unlikely of Take Two announcing Mafia III any time soon. The studio might be holding on to the announcement for E3 2014 and then release the AAA title in fall of 2015 or early 2016.
