It seems 2K Czech are muscling in for their cut of the next-gen console pie, as the studio are busy with Mafia 3. It was to be a launch title but will likely miss that window, says a report.
Apparently 2K Czech are short staffed and need more made-men to pad the offices. Rumour has it the team were assisting Rockstar with GTA V, and being helped to 'grow Mafia' further.
Around 40 members of staff were lost at 2K Czech last year and they're still reeling from the reduction as Mafia III falls 'behind schedule' as it misses becoming a launch title.
This report comes from with 2K Czech yet to offer comment. Microsoft nor Sony have yet to announce their next-gen platforms but industry insiders are pointing toward a late 2013 retail window. More is 'known' about Microsoft's next Xbox console than that of Sony's future PlayStation designs.
