2K Marin's XCOM Shooter Is Still In The Pipeline

After being thoroughly upstaged by Firaxis' strategic masterpiece, 2K Marin's controversial XCOM shooter was put onto the back burner, but apparently it's still cooking away. During their third-quarter financial call, 2K revealed that the project is still in full production and slated to release in the next financial year: i.e. before April 2014.

Originally announced as an atmospheric horror-esque shooter set in the 1950s, and later repurposed into a much more strategic affair, the XCOM reboot was recently rumoured to have shifted focus yet again to become a squad-based third person shooter.

Despite massive fan outcry over the change in direction for the franchise (which may well have helped to accelerate the production of XCOM: Enemy Unknown), we were cautiously impressed with what we saw of 2K Marin's effort at E3 2011. We daresay that more details will be made public over the coming months.
