2K resurfaces XCOM shooter, now called The Bureau: XCOM Declassified

The-bureau-xcom-declassified-ss01 Remember the XCOM shooter revealed way before the XCOM: Enemy Unknown reboot? Well its not dead. With the success of the reboot, I'm assuming the title change was done to avoid any confusion between the two games. A live-action trailer was released to reveal the game's re-title and has given it a release date.

A live-action trailer? yea...not the best way to bring back a title not that well received when it was first revealed to the public. The Bureau: XCOM Declassified will be released on August 20 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.


Polygon reports that the XCOM shooter will be an origins story of some kind that will show how the XCOM organization started, and is set in 1962 when the Cold War is at its peak. What they are trying to achieve with this FPS is to provide a lot of strategy elements into it, much like what we know in an XCOM game.

Will it be any good? Well, I wasn't too happy when it was first revealed, but since we now have a perfect reboot of the original XCOM, checking it out when it comes out in August wouldn't hurt..will it?
