XCOM 2 Announced for PC

by on June 2, 2015

2K and Firaxis have announced XCOM 2, the sequel to the award winning XCOM Enemy Unknown.

The game is currently in development for Windows-based PCs. Feral Interactive will be porting it to Mac and Linux.

XCOM 2 is set 20 years into the future where the aliens have won against humanity and XCOM is mostly forgotten.

There are two things interesting about this announcement.

The first being the role reversal with XCOM now being the invading force. The gameplay will involve stealth-like sections as well and have procedurally generated levels among other things.

The second being the apparent PC exclusivity for the game. XCOM Enemy Unknown was awesome on everything from consoles to PC and even mobile. It had brilliant controller support.

XCOM 2 is set to release this November.
