The developer behind the XCOM shooter, 2K Marin, has kinda sorta confirmed that the game will be unveiled as The Bureau in the “coming days.”
The news comes alongside the latest teaser for the game which points to an April 26th reveal. Watch the accompanying vid through here.
Writing on the 2K Blog, the developer said, “In the coming days the world will get a fresh look at the long-awaited squad-based tactical shooter in development at 2K Marin.
“Announced back in 2010, the game has undergone an evolution since we last showed it to you at E3 2011. Firaxis’ critically acclaimed turn-based strategy title, XCOM: Enemy Unknown, has reignited the classic franchise and we feel that the time is right to deliver a new experience within the world of XCOM.”
The blog post also hinted at the changes the game has undergone since it was first announced.
“The creative development of this game has been a collaborative process of discovery and iteration. 2K’s culture allows our studios the freedom to refine their visions, to explore new ideas, and to deliver the best possible experiences for players. Through this exploration, 2K Marin has refined their vision, and as a result the game has evolved into a high-stakes narrative experience imbued with core XCOM concepts.
“The wait is nearly over and we can’t wait to share more details with you about the game in only a matter of days.”
