If true, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End has some competition.

While publisher 2K Games hasn't provided us with an official launch date for the anticipated Mafia III , it seems retailers have let the cat out of the bag early.

One gamer sent an image of a Best Buy pre-order card for the game to IGN and as you can see, the title should be ready to go in April. Both GameStop and Amazon are showing the same date – April 26 – and yeah, that just happens to be the same launch date as Uncharted 4 , thanks to the latest delay .

2K's parent company Take-Two Interactive has said in the past that we can expect Mafia III in the next fiscal year, which starts on April 1, 2016, so perhaps the date is correct. The game was unveiled last summer ; it's set in New Orleans in the 1960s and you adopt the role of Lincoln Clay, a black Vietnam War veteran. It looks as if it might have a fantastic narrative and of course, it will offer open-world goodness as well.
