Doesn't look too bad. The chap on the right reminds me some of the guards in UFO (the episode where the young handsome officer chap guy (Paul?) falls asleep in a sauna, stuff happens and later on is chased by some guards), and the chap on the left looks like he'd fit into TFTD.

Overall a little more 'b-movie anti-space-alien operative' looking than the accountant or mild mannered news reporter look we've seen.

XCOM delayed?

Quote

"2K Games now expects to release XCOM during fiscal 2013," which is a delay for the X-Com-based shooter, which was previously expected in Fiscal 2012. This means the game is now expected between April 1, 2012 and March 31, 2013.

You know the previous release date would colide with Diablo 3 and Mass Effect 3 so the XCOM sale rate would be pretty low at that time. Also they probably would like to throw more ohs and ahs, but they will probably turn up as duh facepalm.

Maybe we'll get lucky and they'll just keep postponing it forever.  :(

2K Marin's XCOM shooter has been delayed until 2013. While we liked what we saw at last year's E3, 2K has apparently decided to relaunch the franchise with the 2012 XCOM: Enemy Unknown strategy game that's being developed by Firaxis. This information comes from the issue 226 of Game Informer.

Yeah; so I guess we could say they still have a couple of neurons left... :)

I'm sorry, that's one of the few sensible things I've seen anyone in the game industry do.  I'm not quite sure I believe it.

I can. Releasing two radically different games, in terms of both gameplay and, let's face it, theme, will confuse their paying customers. There're reasonable chances this will not be released, or will be retooled to better match the canon of EU.

If they're going to re-work the FPS considerably to match then I'm not convinced that they even have enough time at this point to do so.

I would think that what we've seen from XCOM:EU that they could use similar move/fire mechanics in the FPS for squad mates but that's about it, and I don't think they even need to change the system they have there to be honest.

As has been mentioned elsehwhere the FPS has a tenuous link to Apocalypse, so if the goo = Micronoids and the blocky alien dimension is the one from Apoc then it could technically all be pulled together in a third game :)
