It’s been a while since we’ve heard from 2K Marin about their XCOM shooter, so long in fact that the game is now different to what we’ve seen in the past.
Over at the 2K blog, the studio are teasing new information for the game and generally updating us on what’s happened in the past few years.
“The XCOM universe is expanding. In the coming days the world will get a fresh look at the long-awaited squad-based tactical shooter in development at 2K Marin. Announced back in 2010, the game has undergone an evolution since we last showed it to you at E3 2011.
“The creative development of this game has been a collaborative process of discovery and iteration. 2K’s culture allows our studios the freedom to refine their visions, to explore new ideas, and to deliver the best possible experiences for players.
“Through this exploration, 2K Marin has refined their vision, and as a result the game has evolved into a high-stakes narrative experience imbued with core XCOM concepts.The wait is nearly over and we can’t wait to share more details with you about the game in only a matter of days.”
After the success of the Enemy Unknown there is undoubtedly a lot of pressure on 2K Marin to live up to certain standards, their recent evolution was probably a response to the previous games’ success. It seems that the new reveal is coming very soon so watch out for that, hopefully it impresses.
