2K Marin's XCOM Shooter To Be Rebranded as 'The Bureau'?

Previously in 2K Marin's XCOM shooter rumours, word on the street was that the game was set to change tack and become a squad-based third-person shooter, and now, there's hearsay surrounding 2K Games' registration of domains thebureau-game.com, thebureau-game.net and whathappenedin62.com.

It's thought that these domains could be hinting at a rebranding of 2K Marin's troubled XCOM shooter, which had you stepping into the polished wingtips of an FBI agent in 1962. With Firaxis' XCOM: Enemy Unknown enjoying some well-deserved success, it could be that 2K is considering making the two games closer to one another in genre terms, to avoid dilution of the brand.

Poor old XCOM has been through the wringer since its development commenced back in 2005, with the latest official line stating that the game will be coming during fiscal year 2014. We saw the game back at E3 in 2011, and have to say that the XCOM shooter actually looked rather promising. Strange...
