It was recently announced by Firaxis that their sequel, XCOM 2 would be coming to consoles this September. When first announced last year, it was said to be exclusive to PC. In fact, in interviews after the game’s announcement it was said “XCOM 2 is not coming out for consoles.”
XCOM: Enemy Unknown was a huge hit with fans of the old games and a sleeper hit as it became Game of the Year for many people. It made a huge impact on PC and consoles alike and fans made themselves heard demanding XCOM 2 be released on consoles.
For those of you that were upset last year that it was PC only and decided to ignore everything about XCOM 2, you will be once again filling the shoes of the commander and now leading a rebellion as the events of the last game saw that the aliens actually won the war and have now taken over Earth. It is 20 years later, so it is about time to take it back and you will be doing so by recruiting other like-minded people wanting to take the fight to the aliens that most people are now loyally following.
Firaxis themselves are not handling the port of the game however, it is being ported by The Workshop.
XCOM 2 to will be releasing on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on September 6, 2016.
