Mafia II is the 2010 sequel to Mafia: The City of Lost Heaven.[3] It was released on August 24, 2010 in North America and August 27, 2010 in the PAL region. The game is set in Empire Bay which is a parody of The Empire State, the nickname for New York in the years 1945 to 1955. Mafia II was protested by an Italian-American group because they thought the game was portraying ethnic stereotypes.[4]
