Take-Two, parent company of 2K Games and Rockstar has released its quarterly financial report, where a release date for the Firaxis-developed XCOM: Enemy Unknown was revealed, but a delay of over a year for the FPS tactical-RPG entry, XCOM, was also revealed.
XCOM: Enemy Unknown will be coming to PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 this October 12 in Australia and New Zealand, with a bunch of pre-order deals outlined, including the Elite Soldier Pack which offers "top-of-the-line soldier customization features that will only be available for a limited time". The best news, however, comes in information there will be a PC-specific special edition that "contains a variety of unique XCOM items".
"As we reimagine XCOM, one of our goals is to evolve the experience while recognising what made X-COM one of the greatest PC games to date,” said Sarah Anderson, senior vice president of marketing for 2K (via press release). “It’s important to create an experience that is appealing to both existing fans and newcomers to the world of XCOM, which is what we’re doing with XCOM: Enemy Unknown.”
As for the XCOM FPS delay, which is being handled by 2K Marin, no details were divulged for the lengthy delay other than we'd be seeing it sometime between April 2013 and March 2014.
