Take-Two announces further delays to XCOM, Spec Ops

Nov 08 // Alasdair Duncan    @Full_of_hornets

Publisher Take-Two Interactive has announced that the forthcoming XCOM will be delayed into "fiscal year 2013" along with first-person shooter Spec Ops: The Line. This follows a positive financial report for the second quarter of 2011, but Take-Two will still announce losses for fiscal 2012 compared to 2011.

Take-Two has some big-name titles coming out in the next six months: BioShock Infinite, The Darkness II, and Max Payne 3. "Fiscal 2013" is between April 2012 and March 2013, so we could see XCOM before the summer, but I'd worry that Take-Two would move it later to avoid BioShock Infinite and maybe Grand Theft Auto V. Spec Ops: The Line is penciled in for the "first half fiscal 2013."

I'm still really keen to play XCOM: the game has had a quiet development but they had a novel presence at PAX and there's finally been some behind-the-scenes development info. That being said, some extra months would probably be welcome by developer 2K.
