2K Marin has new IP in the works - Resume

BioShock 2, XCOM studio incubating new title, according to listing on employee's 2011-dated resume.

2K Marin is presently at work on breathing new life into the XCOM series in the form of a first-person shooter of the same name. However, that might not be the only project the Novato, California-based company is at work on.

Is 2K Marin cooking up a new franchise?

As spotted by Internet information hound Superannuation, a 2K Marin employee's resume lists an "unannounced title" in the works at the BioShock 2 studio.

Further information about the game was not provided, but the resume notes that a team of five was working to build "world prototypes" and pitch them to higher-ups.

Of note, the resume was most recently updated in 2011, and 2K Marin still has its hands full finishing up work on XCOM. That game is due for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC during parent publisher Take-Two's upcoming financial year, which runs from April 1, 2012, to March 31, 2013.

@SavoyPrime If they make a FPS is got to be better than Deadspace 1 & 2 and I don't think 2K marin have got half a chance. @brucecambell "Someone has some series hate issues with 2k marin". I think you mean if you say anything bad about 2k Marin, you'll get thumbs down.On the "New XCOM strategy game in the works" thread I made some comments on how stupid marin where to make a FPS out Xcom and put a gay character in it.They where deleted and this other a*hole LtReviews streams abuse at me and calls me homophobic is deemed Ok by gamespot.Go figure ?

@brucecambell I think the fans of the original Xcom are still p*ssed off at Marin's FPS Xcom with a gay scientist.

Why are all the comments rated down? Someone has some series hate issues with 2k marin.

Most likely another worse-than-original cash-in like Bioshock 2 or FPS XCOM.
