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.
