XCOM 2 is coming to consoles in September

2K Games announced this morning the turn-based strategy title from Firaxis Games would be released on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

The development team's original plan was to only release XCOM 2 on PC, but thanks to fans' repeated requests for a console version, the studio relented.

Working alongside Firaxis on the PC version was The Workshop, which helped the team apply various fixes. The Workshop will be handling the console version.

Those who pre-order XCOM 2 will receive the Resistance Warrior Pack, which provides additional soldier customization options such as bonus outfits, headgear and custom facial war paint.

The Resistance Warrior Pack also includes a “Survivor of the Old War,” a new XCOM recruit who will appear in the Avenger’s barracks.

Additionally, those who pre-order the XCOM 2 Digital Deluxe Edition will receive the XCOM 2 Reinforcement Pack which includes all paid XCOM 2 DLC along with the base game and Resistance Warrior Pack.

XCOM 2 will be released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One September 6 in North America and September 9 in Europe.

The game was released on PC in February.
