XCOM, the shooter from 2K Marin, is still a part of Take-Two’s future launch plans, scheduled for fiscal year 2014. Take-Two’s fiscal 2014 runs from April 1, 2013, to March 31, 2014. This is the same release window XCOM received in May 2012, which is also the last time we heard any significant news about the game.
It’s easy to get dismissive about XCOM the shooter. It’s a shooter, for one. That’s kinda hard to swallow. Also, it seems like its development has had a lot more downs than ups. Despite this, today’s news strikes me as exciting. It’s an indication that someone got the idea to work.
