A video suggesting that the relaunch XCOM will be revealed on April 26, or Friday if you will. A video called “What Happened in 62″ is below, and is 18 seconds long. The game may be called The Bureau, or something like that upon release if recent evidence is any indication. Thanks, Shack.

    It’s pretty silly. I guess they want people to forget all about XCOM and start over.

    I don’t think that is the case, actually, DSB

    See, in the video there, Rev3Games found materials in their box with reference to Internal Defense Directorate, and something called Infinivac (along with Citizen Skywatch)…all of which were part of the original ARG/promotional push around XCOM (fps) three years ago:

    R3G’s box, amongst other things also contained a hidden photo with today’s date, in 1962 written on the back lol.

    @3 It’s obviously still the same game, they’re just going to give it a different name.

    I think they have every interest in keeping this seperate from XCOM. If this fails it reflects badly on the brand as a whole, and if it succeeds, they’ll have two great brands instead of one.

    Sweet, this is the way XCOM should always have been.

    Damn strategy spinoffs ruining the brand.
