The lights are on
Listings for something called XCOM Enemy Within have appeared on Korean ratings boards, as well as the Steam database.
The mysterious listings were spotted by CVG, and outside of the name, there is no evidence or indication hinting at what Enemy Within could be.
The Bureau: XCOM Declassified is coming soon. We have a full preview of that entry into the XCOM franchise here. You can also check out the latest trailer for The Bureau here. XCOM: Enemy Unknown also received a port to iPad last month.
XCOM: Enemy Unknown appeared on our February cover last year. You can check out all of our coverage at the banner link below.
That covers everything we know about the released and announced XCOMs. What do you think this new one is?
Our TakeThe hope is that this is some kind of new full-blown XCOM game, but with The Bureau: XCOM Declassified not too far off, it would be surprising to see an all-new XCOM coming so quickly. My blind speculation? A new XCOM non-port for iPad, or maybe some kind of Enemy Unknown DLC.

More X-Com is good in my book. Like Tingle, I bet it's a Bureau DLC.
XCOM: Enemy Unknown is similar to Enemy Within so my guess is a new DLC, which I hope it is. I haven't even beat the game yet and I have had it for months, its on my list of games to finally beat but have put hours into. You know that list...
If it is for The Bureau, it would probably involve the Thin Men or a new alien that can disguise itself that has/have infiltrated the Bureau and need to be found. That, or an even more literal translation where there is an engineered virus you need to get rid of/prevent.
Gotta be an expansion for Enemy Unknown. Best case scenario from my perspective is an only slightly updated UFO Defense.
But will the PC port actually let me save games, load games, change the resolution, and make decisions in scripted missions without breaking? That's what I want to know.
Enemy Within? Could that be a throwback to Xcom 2, with the underwater aliens? That's technically "within," no?
Give me anything related to XCOM:EU and I will I'll be happier than a Labrador Retriever catching tennis balls and a Frisbee. In other words really, really mind blowingly happy.
Playing through Enemy Unknown right now. It's freaking wonderful. Still, The Beureau seems fantastic from what I've seen. Whatever it is I'm just happy there's more XCOM!
I bet it will be a game about aliens that act as a stomach virus in humans and cause an pandemic of diarrhea. Hence the name Enemy Within.
Enemy Unknown sequel or some substantial DLC for it would be awesome. I just got into this and I can't stop.
