2K confirms XCOM announcement during Gamescom 2013

Listing for XCOM: Enemy Within appears on South Korean rating board, with publisher 2K confirming an announcement for August 21.

XCOM publisher 2K has confirmed that a new title, which is believed to be titled XCOM: Enemy Within, will be announced during Gamescom 2013.

No Caption Provided

2K's formal announcement will be made on August 21.

XCOM: Enemy Within was previously spotted on South Korea's rating board (spotted by CVG), with listings for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.

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.

I am completely and pleasantly mesmerized by Xcom: Enemy Unknown on my first playthru. I haven't had this much fun gaming since my gunslingin' highwayman of the wastes reluctantly put the final smackdown on the Mojave in Fallout New Vegas last year. If this new Xcom is a standalone sequel rather than DLC, then that's really great news because playing xcom: eu has been pure joy.

More DLC for XCOM: EU? That would be awesome. The game could use more content 4sure, it does feels a bit incomplete.

hope one can build more than one base this time around, also better mechanics for taking down UFOs, in the original every encounter didnt guaranty a downed UFO, it certainly made things interesting.

You knows what's funny, in one of my Enemy Unknown Sessions, my squad had one soldier left. I walked into the next room and oh look: Chryssalids, 3 of them..

I hope there's more replayability and story-driven decision making in the sequel. The gameplay itself is amazing already.

Yes! You rock Firaxis! I was worried about X-Com Enemy Unknown, But it was awesome, always room for improvement but a great installment for this generation. I'm definitly excited about this new X-Com. Enemy Within eh? Terror of the Deep maybe? Oh god that would be so awesome!

What? Another game? Can you at least fix the current one before releasing the new one? Xcom still has tons of bugs.

@nurnberg This might be incorrect information. It seems like different gaming news sources are reporting different things. Some are reporting that it may be DLC for EU.

@roman4545 @nurnberg The fake percentages are very annoying. That is called a bug and normally those are removed from games when developers want to make a good game. The fact that they don't bother you mean you have low standards of quality.

@roman4545 Yeah you hear that Nurnberg?! YOU NEED TO GET ON THE WINNING TEAM!!!!

Roman, your argument is just backpeddling and lacking understanding. I hope you're not very old.

There are still common visual glitches in the game
There are still issues with Multiplayer values being imbalanced.
As you even admitted, the percentages are not accurate.
And while not a bug, the game is poorly designed for handling variations in terrain height in terms of controls.

@nurnberg the percentage arent fake... YOU ARE... the problem is the bug that sometimes its accurate sometimes its not... so its a normal bug like in all games ! Dude.. the game is not perfect but average !

Either your copy sucks or you need to ignore the bugs just like everyone else...

Pretty sure it'll be a sequel, It's almost been a year since the game was released and if they're just announcing a game, that means it probably won't come out until next year. Either way, more of a great thing is never a bad thing. (logic is fun)

I never thought this series would be resurrected and reach mainstream popularity after it's spectacular demise so many years ago. It's like I'm living a dream.

It may not be the Final Fantasy Tactics sequel I've always wanted but it's the next best thing. Can't wait for another X-Com.

Finally. The game is wonderful, but it seriously lacks replayapility. I will buy as long as it is not another slinghot.

**** yeah.

Firaxis giving the people what they want.

A lot of cry babies complaining about "More Map", "More Weapons"... While Firaxis was already working on a sequel (or an expansion or standalone expansion)... That's awesome.

I hope they balance it better, because the beginning is too hard, but the end of the campaign is too easy...

@meatz666 Let's hope it's an expansion and a good expansion at that. Slingshot was underwhelming

Love X-Com:EU, would love to see new content or even a new game with some of the bugs ironed out. The animation was a bit choppy in places and the line of sight was terrible once you started fighting on different levels.

But still! Looking forward to trying Declassified later this month, but another game like EU would be very much appreciated :)

They should make a sequel to "Enemy Unknown" where you invade the alien planet. I want to continue it with my previous save games too.

@max-hit Would be cool, but isn't going to happen. I can't remember the last time somebody made a sequel with direct stat carry-overs. ME2 to ME3 came closest. Remember Quest for Glory, anybody? That's how RPGs should be done with sequels-just give us a new benchmark to hit each game. Imagine if TES did that...

@Haeravon @max-hit I think it's not going to happen either. IMO Firaxis focus their games in a whole epic experience.
