Mafia 3 is in development for the next Xbox and PlayStation 4, according to our Czech Republic cousins at Eurogamer.cz.

Eurogamer.cz's story (translated into English for Eurogamer by Jan Doskocil, the author of the report), reveals that the gangster sequel had been intended as a next-gen launch title, but this is now unlikely as the developer, 2K Czech, is still in the process of staffing up after the loss of some 40 staff last year.

11 positions are available at 2K Czech, including one for a systems designer. These job listings say the developer is working on its "next AAA title".

2k Czech declined to comment when contacted by Eurogamer.cz.

In March 2K Czech was rumoured to be helping Rockstar with the development of Grand Theft Auto 5, working on cutscenes and general gameplay. According to VG247, the two studios were trading tech secrets in an attempt to turn Mafia into a monster franchise.

Both Microsoft and Sony are yet to announce their next generation plans, but consoles from both companies are reportedly set for launch late next year.
