'What Happened in 62'


[Update: A blog post from 2K Games has confirmed that the "XCOM universe is expanding. In the coming days the world will get a fresh look at the long-awaited squad-based tactical shooter in development at 2K Marin."]

It seems increasingly likely that 2K Games is about to once again lift the curtain on the XCOM first-person shooter. We don't specifically know why now is the right time -- perhaps the game has changed direction again and is now far enough along to go public, or Enemy Unknown's success played some part in its continued financial support -- but the evidence speaks for itself.

A new video, set in 1962 based on its title, has surfaced. This comes from the same account that has been linked with earlier coverage of XCOM's would-be re-reveal. Of special note are the words "APR 26" and "2K" at the 0:16 mark. If true, at least we'll get this over with before long.

New developer diary focuses on tone and visuals
The LOST and LOTR star is the hunter or is he the prey?
And that's not just because it has a clown in it.
Now if we can just get some psionics in here...
Did he even use his gun once?
And a first look at the 'Codebreakers' bonus mission
They certainly like their secrecy
