XCOM 2 released earlier this year as a PC exclusive to very impressive reviews, making many console only gamers disappointed they were not going to get a chance to play it. Thankfully, a console version was announced in the last few months for a release in early September, but PS4 and Xbox One owners are going to have to wait a few extra weeks now.
Take-Two held their quarterly earnings call yesterday and discussed a variety of topics, with the upcoming release of XCOM 2 for consoles being one of them. While XCOM 2 was originally scheduled for release on September 6 for PS4 and Xbox One, they revealed a small delay.
According to GameSpot, Take-Two president Karl Slatoff revealed that XCOM 2 will now be coming to consoles three weeks later than originally scheduled, now arriving on September 27.
The reason given for this delay, according to Slatoff, is to “ensure the game is fully polished at launch and meets the team’s high standards.”
He also made a point to say that 2K and Firaxis Games would be continuing to support the PC version as well with free and paid DLC after the release of the console version of XCOM 2 as well, so PC gamers need not worry.
