XCOM Announced

2K Marin, the very same guys behind BioShock 2 are now working on a reboot of the XCOM franchise. This time round the game will be a first person shooter adding in an extra layer of immersion along with all the strategic elements that made the first game a blast at the time.

Here’s what Christoph Hartmann, of 2K had to say on the matter, __STARTQUOTE__"With BioShock 2, the team at 2K Marin proved themselves as masters of first-person, suspenseful storytelling, and with XCOM they will re-imagine and expand the rich lore of this revered franchise. Players will explore the world of XCOM from an immersive new perspective and experience firsthand the fear and tension of this gripping narrative ride."__ENDQUOTE__

XCOM will release sometime next year for the Xbox360 and PC.
