Posted on January 16, 2012, Phil Hornshaw Aww, 2K Marin’s XCOM Shooter Title Delayed Till 2013
Sounds like 2K Marin will be holding back its shooter addition to the XCOM franchise for another year.
It’s a bit of a bummer that fans will have to wait until 2013 to enjoy a more action-oriented XCOM title. But there’s still XCOM: Enemy Unknown, Firaxis’ strategy-flavored edition to the serise.
The shooter update of the game looked promising, and Firaxis claims it won’t be just porting a console version of Enemy Unknown onto PC — which is always good news. But if you want a more blasting-centric experience, well, you’re going to have to make do with something else, like any of the 1 million shooters on the market, in the meantime.
