News Filter: X-Com Remake Coming From Firaxis

  • Twitter is all abuzz with the news this morning. Game Informer revealed the cover for its February 2012 issue featuring a remake of X-Com: UFO Defense. The new game, called XCOM: Enemy Unknown (a melding of the original and new titles), is being developed by superstar strategy developer Firaxis.

  • I am both shocked and surprised by the announcement. No one has ever been able to catch that lightning in a bottle again like that original game. Though, like Tesh, I'm eager to see how Xenonauts turns out. (He has more to say here.)

  • Oh, and if you are curious what all of the fuss is about, the original X-Com series is the daily deal on Steam. Grab it while it's cheap!

  • I'm starting to regret pulling the "X-Com" tags off of my blog. Who knew that we'd still be talking about this game in 2012?
