Fans of the XCOM franchise may be a bit disappointed, since 2K and Firaxis Games have delayed the upcoming installment, XCOM 2, by four months.
They explained that the reason for the delay is to ensure the best possible experience, and live up to the success that XCOM: Enemy Unknown has achieved.
“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.”
XCOM 2 is now set to release on February 5 exclusively on the PC.
