Rumor – XCOM FPS Renamed as ‘Bureau’
Remember the XCOM FPS you were all so eagerly waiting for? Well, it isn’t coming out at all if a certain report is believed to be true.
According to ’SUPERANNUATION’ on Kotaku, the XCOM FPS has been transformed into an altogether different game, leaving the XCOM brand behind.
Here is an extract of what he wrote:
Last week, Take-Two registered the domains thebureau-game.com, thebureau-game.net,whathappenedin62.com, and whathappenedin62.net. These domains seem to hint at a rebranding of 2K’s beleaguered XCOM shooter, which places players in the shoes of an FBI agent in 1962.
The game in question has been in development since 2005. However, we had heard no news of it in the recent past. The game has a troubled development phase and the constant changing of development teams has not helped it.
Keep in mind that 2K, the game’s publisher, has so far not commented on this development.
Oh by the way, if you haven’t heard already; XCOM: Enemy Unknown is coming to iOS this summer.
