It’s been nearly a year since XCOM: Chimera Squad launched for PC, and though it was a fairly experimental title that deviated from established series conventions in some key ways, it was a great strategy game in its own right. Given the series’ popularity, there’s been no shortage of questions about when Chimera Squad will release for more platforms, especially since the series does have a pretty successful presence on consoles as well- and it seems the turn based tactics title could be headed to more platforms soon.
XCOM: Chimera Squad has been handed an age rating for the PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch by Pan European Game Information (or PEGI), the European ratings board. There has been no official word on Chimera Squad releasing for additional platforms from developers Firaxis or publisher 2K Games, but hopefully, the PEGI rating will mean that an announcement is imminent, as if so often the case in similar situations.
Currently, XCOM: Chimera Squad is available exclusively on PC. In our review of the game, we awarded it a score of 8/10, saying, “XCOM: Chimera Squad isn’t the next big step for the franchise but it is a fun detour into an alternate scenario, one with its own hooks and idiosyncrasies.” You can read our full review through here.
