One of the worst kept secrets in video games continues to splurt out cool little clues as to its existence.

We’re talking about the XCOM shooter’s rebranding as The Bureau, of course, the latest evidence of which has turned up on the Veritas MCMLXIII YouTube channel that gave us Russian Meteor Lies the other day.

This one’s called ‘What Happened in 62’ and looks to show the seconds before aliens came to suburban America and started fucking shit up. But wait, what’s that at the end?

It’s a date. Tucked away on the edges of the film, shown for less than a second, it says - APR 26 2K. So expect a full reveal then.

Instead of making it an FPS they should just make it an RTS like Enemy Unknown.

@5 Actually Ennemy Unknown isn't a RTS since it's turn based.

Well... Since we already have Enemy Unkown, why not exploring some new options , new visions and/or new gameplay mechanics within the same spirit or universe ?

I'm glad this game was not wiped out and come to us again. It seems kinda interesting.
