XCOM FPS trailers pulled from 2K Marin Youtube channel; website disappeared, too


I’m sure there must be a secret government term for what’s going on over at the XCOM FPS’ site right now, black bagging or somesuch. All I know is that, currently, the domain for the long in development shooter is 404-ing. That in itself shouldn’t be cause for a story, except that parts of the site are fine, only the FPS project is effected.

Then there’s the scrubbing of trailers from 2K’s Youtube channel.

It’s as though Take-Two are taking down all official, present references to the game. Maybe the next step is seeing little redacted boxes over any mention of the words XCOM FPS.

This could all be linked to a potential project which Supperannuation spotted back in March. The Bureau could be another XCOM spin-off in development, one which has superseded the original FPS project, hence the removal of the site. It could be the third person shooter we saw screens of not too long ago.

Until we learn more, watch the skies!

Cheers, Digital Trends.

We shall lift you clean out of history. We shall turn you into gas and pour you into the stratosphere. Nothing will remain of you. Not a name in a register. Not a memory in a living brain.

That is a GREAT picture for this story :)


Btw, I don't care one bit if this got canned finally. We have Firaxis' game - the XCOM we all wanted. We don't need this. That being said, the smart thing to do would be to just redo it as an original IP and divorce it from XCOM entirely. Let 2K Marin do it's own thing; whether that thing is good or not remains to be seen. But I know this; their take on XCOM looked stupid.
