Were you looking forward to playing the new XCOM game? Sorry, but Firaxis has recently announced that game will be pushed back a few months. XCOM 2 was originally planned be released in November this year, but that has been moved to 5 February 2016. It’s just a three month delay, which is reasonable and not too long of a wait. And, like always, the reason for the delay comes down to making the game even better. Here’s what Firaxis had to say:
We’ve set a high bar for the sequel and the entire team has been working hard to make sure we deliver a great follow-up to Enemy Unknown. We just need a little more time to make it the best possible game.
With XCOM 2, we want to have more depth, more replayability, and more investment in your soldiers and this extension will give us the time we need to deliver on our promise to you.
We appreciate your patience and continued support as we move towards February. Good luck, Commander!
Spending extra time on a game to improve the quality is never a bad thing, plus the abundance of great games this October and November, may make this is pricey purchase.
