Next to the FPS from 2K’s Marin studio, gamers can look forward to another XCOM title in the not too distant future. Civilization developer Firaxis is working on a proper re-imagining of the turn-based strategy game, the publisher’s announced, carrying the name XCOM: Enemy Unknown.
There are no proper assets yet, though the GameInformer cover below does deliver a bit of art.
As for further information, it’s known that destructible tactical environments are in, as is a combination of a real-time strategic view and turn-based combat.
“We’re looking forward to building upon the core gameplay experiences that fans of the original X-COM love, while introducing the franchise to a new generation,” said Sarah Anderson, senior vice president of marketing for 2K. “With Firaxis’ XCOM: Enemy Unknown and 2K Marin’s upcoming XCOM, 2K Games will be offering two different gameplay experiences drawing from the classic X-COM universe. Each game offers a unique XCOM experience in different genres, as envisioned by two different studios with unique creative visions.”
Enemy Unknown will be out on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC this fall.
