The Godfather II is a 2009 video game based on The Godfather Part II, a 1974 crime drama film directed by Francis Ford Coppola and written by Mario Puzo. The game will be published by Electronic Arts and has been confirmed to be released on the PS3, Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows. This is also a sequel to The Godfather: The Game, which was also developed and published by EA in 2006. The development of the sequel was hinted at from as early as 2007, and in August 2008, EA officially revealed the game, which is to be released in February 2009
The Godfather II will take place in the late 1950s over 3 cities: Havana, New York City, and Miami. Michael Corleone orders the player's character to take charge of the family after the death of Aldo Trapani, the first game's protagonist. Now as Dominic, the player leads the family to defeat other families and take control of various businesses and crime rings, in order to become the most powerful mobster in America.
Although "inspired by" the film, the game will deviate from the film's plot; for example, the flashbacks of Vito Corleone's early life in Sicily will not be featured. Many of the stars of the film will lend their likenesses and voices to the game; this includes Robert Duvall returning to voice Tom Hagen. However, Al Pacino will not voice Michael Corleone (making it the second game he won't appear in), and Coppola, the director of the film, is also reported to be uninvolved with the game's development
