2K Marin's XCOM
shooter seems to be in trouble, based on how thorough 2K Games has been about erasing it from the internet. The XCOM
and even all trailers uploaded to 2K Games' official YouTube channel
have been removed.Last month, a piece from Superannuation posited that 2K Games is looking to rebrand the XCOM shooter, based on some domain registrations for thebureau-game.com, thebureau-game.net, whathappenedin62.com, and whathappenedin62.net. The XCOM shooter, if you'll recall, takes place in 1962.
As of February, XCOM
is still in production
at 2K Marin for parent company Take-Two's fiscal 2014, which means it's due before March 31, 2014. We've contacted 2K Games for comment and will update when we hear back.
