Despite plans to release XCOM 2 this year, Firaxis, and 2K have announced the upcoming sequel won’t be out until February 5th, 2016.
“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,” the studio said.
“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,” Firaxis concluded.
While disappointing, it will still release in its fiscal year unlike Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs.The news was revealed on the opening day of Pax Prime in Seattle. We’re seeing during the weekend and will reporting back if new information surfaces.
