The lights are on
Maybe we'll get to stop calling it "XCOM Shooter" soon, as 2K Games is prepared to re-reveal the action-oriented alien blasting title. This morning on the official blog, a statement was posted promising "a new experience within the world of XCOM."
This follows the scrubbing of all previous (official) mentions of the game from the internet and a mysterious file box we received this week. Perhaps now that gamers have gotten the true XCOM update they very much desired, the world will be more receptive to a different take on the alien invasion.
According to the announcement, we'll know very soon.
Email the author Mike Futter, or follow on Google+, Twitter, and Game Informer.
Wow, they are actually going to show the game?!? Haha, well I'm glad it's still in the works and that footage will finally be shown after the long hiatus.
Can't wait hope it's as good as the strategy game.
I really want to kill those black goo thing-a-ma-bobs.
Sounds good. Carry on Sergeant Futter.
after that nifty promo kit, i'm all ears.
well, not literally. i just have the two. but if i WAS all ears i could hear incredibly...i just couldn't type.
I'm excited for this.
Here's to hoping that it is that XCOM game, and not a squad-based downloadable TPS that was originally rumored.
Ha all I can think of when I see this game is how different the 2 walking dead games did.
It's also possible that 2K is releasing an expansion or even sequel to XCOM: Enemy Unknown. For a game that performed so well critically (and hopefully sales-wise too) it seems to have awfully little post-launch DLC support. It seems likely to me that they've shifted the DLC team to a bigger XCOM project.
So the XCOM shooter is finally coming back...
Hopefully it's a rebrand.
WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO,lets see this god damn xcom shooter all ready,we been waiting.
Thank goodness. However I think this might let me down, I still think they can make a solid title within an 8 or 9 range with it.
(crosses fingers) Please be 3rd person, please be 3rd person....
