XCOM publisher 2K has confirmed that a new title, which is believed to be titled XCOM: Enemy Within, will be announced during Gamescom 2013.
2K's formal announcement will be made on August 21.
No details about the title, such as whether it is DLC for XCOM: Enemy Unknown or an entirely new game, were provided.
Civilization maker Firaxis developed 2012's XCOM: Enemy Unknown, which received both critical and commercial success. The game has recently been released on iOS devices.
During PAX East in March, Firaxis teased a new project that looked similar to XCOM.
"XCOM: Enemy Unknown is a wonderful and worthy strategy game with a layer of campy charm that makes the stone-faced seriousness of the game's characters all the more endearing," said reviewer Kevin VanOrd in GameSpot's review of XCOM: Enemy Unknown.
2K's next shot at the XCOM franchise, shooter spin-off The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, will be released on August 20.
