2K Marin’s XCOM To Be Re-Revealed in the Coming Days

What form will it take this time?

Posted By | On 24th, Apr. 2013


2K Games has released an update, after the recent teaser video, about their reboot for XCOM. No, this is in no way related to XCOM: Enemy Unknown from Firaxis. This was supposed to be a third person shooter, but has since been retooled.

Apparently, 2K Games will be re-revealing the game as a “squad-based tactical shooter” and is still in development by 2K Marin. Described as a “collaborative process of discovery and iteration”, the developer promises to showcase the game in a “matter of days”. Given the success of Enemy Unknown, 2K Games thinks it’s the right time to reveal their title.

The game is apparently a “high-stakes narrative experience imbued with core XCOM concepts”. That’s interesting, since the first reveal was far from anything that XCOM represented. Regardless, hopefully the finally reveal will be something of note – if not true to the spirit of the original series, then at least a strong action title.
