Firaxis remaking XCOM/UFO: Enemy Unknown

We were all caught aback when 2K Games revealed their reimagined version of X-COM a couple of years ago to be a first person shooter. After years of pining over reluctance to use the property, it seemed like a bit of a kick in the teeth.

Fortunately, 2K Games aren’t complete knobs. In fact, it was revealed today that Firaxis, the studio behind the more recent Civilization games has been working on a full remake of the original XCOM/UFO game for quite some time. Better yet, it’s scheduled to launch later this year.

You can read all about it in the next issue of Game Informer.

However, if you can’t wait until then, you can always grab the original for a pittance.
