2K Marin's XCOM
shooter recently had all its official assets removed from the internet
, which now appears to have been prep work for a new reveal of the game later this week. According to a 2K Games
post, the XCOM "squad-based tactical shooter in development at 2K Marin" will be shown again.
It was a little surprise back in February when Take-Two (2K Games' parent company) announced during its financial call that the XCOM
shooter was still in production
and expected before March 31, 2014.
Firaxis' refresh of the original strategy game, XCOM: Enemy Unknown
, launched last year to "critical and commercial success
." It seems we're about to live in a world where two genres of XCOM live in peaceful coexistence (for a time, anyway).
