Well this looks pretty good just on this brief glimpse of the game.

 

Unlike 2K Marin's previously announced XCOM shooter, which sparked tempers among longtime fans for turning its back on the series' cerebral roots, this title is a full-on strategy game that puts players in command of a global anti-alien defense force. XCOM's leader needs a worldwide perspective where threats are identified, populations reassured, and national leaders mollified

It's about time they started working on an X-COM strategy game.

Looking forward to learning more about this. I knew XCOM the FPS wouldn't be the only XCOM game coming out soon. Hell, they practically stated that word-for-word multiple times -- never understood why people got so upset.

X-Com was the only strategy game I really liked despite I sucked at it.

I look forward to seeing more about it.

I hope that they really do bring it back to the original turn based X-COMS... look into Xenonauts! [url="http://www.xenonauts.com/"]http://www.xenonauts.com/[/url]

I personally am sick of them re-releasing under the name of X-COM, and making it FPS...! major let down! My 5c! :)

so this isn't the shooter 2K is working on? well, Steam had the whole series for like five bucks the other day, guess someone's ramping up interest in the franchise, and this kind of explains it!

Now I just need someone to tell me Syndicate is being remade as a proper syndicate game as well and not just FPS. since there's no tactical game that comes close to syndicate. it's what all other games want to be when they grow up.

You're wrong - as far as I know this is NOT an FPS game. The FPS X-COM is coming sooner, I forgot the name of the game. But this one is definitely a turn based (or not?) Strategy game

Apparently it is a mix of RTS and turn based. I'm just praying that they don't ruin another game from my formative years. This one is at least looks more promising. I couldn't care less about an X-Com FPS (or the Syndicate one).

Just thinking I hope this is a massive hit and we then see a proper Syndicate game as well.

Heck no. The original XCom series was always turn based. I can't fathom playing an XCom in first person.

I don't care if it was turn based, RPG, racer, shooter, or sidescroller. I want the XCOM FPS shooter that has been shown more than this XCOM strategy game. Period.

love how lots of developers still stick to the every car is a Ford Crown Vic creed, even though Ford doesn't make Crown Vics anymore. love the car, but we could use more variety. i mean just look at the first screenshot we get. a Crown Vic, what do you know.
