XCOM-related package shows up on Videogamer’s doorstep

By Stephany Nunneley, Friday, 19 April 2013 20:40 GMT

2K has been really quiet regarding XCOM of late, until it recently went so far as to remove official videos from its YouTube channel and taking the website offline. Last month, a report from Superannuation stated that the game may be in the process of a re-brand due to domain registrations for “thebureau-game.com” and “whathappenedin62.com” popping up – so the culled assets and information seemed to indicate this. Today, Videogamer posted a video of XCOM related contents it received in the mail, proving – hopefully- that it is indeed a re-brand and not an all out cancellation. Watch for yourself below. Thanks, SplatteredHouse.

  • XCOM relaunch may be revealed on April 26

    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.

  • XCOM shooter website and official videos taken offline

    It appears 2K has pulled the official website and privatized the YouTube videos for its XCOM shooter.
