X-COM FPS May Become Third Person Shooter
The X-COM FPS may be changing directions...
Where's the other X-COM game that 2K announced with Enemy Unknown? After its initial announcement, there's been little news on the X-COM shooter besides its delays.
Now, according to some screenshots sent into Kotaku (apparently, they were included as a part of a 2K marketing survey), it seems like the new X-COM game may be taking an entirely new direction. The X-COM title may be shirking the FPS genre in favor of a third person squad-based game, which bridges the gaps between the original turn-based strategy games and the new shooter a little better.
Apparently, the survey also revealed that 2K may be changing this game into a cheaper, downloadable one, as one of the questions asks the survey takers whether or not they'd prefer a downloadable title on PS3 and Xbox 360—yes, it looks like the PC has been neglected, once again—for $30 over a $60 title.
However, all this remains a rumor, as 2K's refused to shed light on the situation: "We have not made any new announcements regarding the XCOM title currently in development at 2K Marin, and it is our policy not to comment on rumors or speculation."
