Firaxis Games have announced that XCOM 2 has been delayed, with a release date now set for February 5th. XCOM 2 was announced in June and was due to be released this November.
A statement reads:
“Hello XCOM fans,
We want to give you an update on the release date for XCOM 2. 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.
“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!”
XCOM 2 is a turn-based strategy game that’s due to release on Windows, with Linux and Mac versions to follow shortly after. As of now, Firaxis has no plans to release the game on consoles.
