XCOM 2 Heading to PS4 and Xbox One #XCOM2


2K Games has announced that XCOM 2 is heading to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on September 6th, 2016 in North America and September 9th internationally.

Quote:
Windsor, UK – June 7, 2016 – 2K announced today that XCOM® 2 is coming to the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One on September 6, 2016 in North America and September 9, 2016 internationally for £39.99.

Additionally, 2K and Firaxis Games have partnered with industry veterans The Workshop, now a dedicated subsidiary of Skydance Media, to bring the title to consoles and ensure that the XCOM 2 experience meets the same high standards of the beloved series.

Upon its initial release for Windows-based PC, XCOM 2 had critics raving, with IGN giving the game a 9.3 out of 10 and saying, “XCOM 2 is an amazing game,” and PC Gamer writing, “We’ll play this forever,” and awarding a 94% out of 100%. Game Informer Magazine also stated that XCOM 2 is “one of the deepest and most rewarding strategy games on the market” and scored the game a 9.5 out of 10.

“Firaxis has successfully enhanced the XCOM franchise, as XCOM 2 has earned both massive critical and fan acclaim,” said Matt Gorman, vice president of marketing for 2K. “Many console gamers have been vocal about bringing XCOM 2 to their platforms, and now they can look forward to joining the resistance this September.”

XCOM 2, is set 20 years in the future where humanity lost the war against the alien threat and a new world order is in place. XCOM, formerly a secret paramilitary organisation, is largely forgotten and must strike back from the shadows to reclaim Earth from the aliens’ rule and free mankind from its evil plans.

“The incredible reception of XCOM 2 has been rewarding and humbling for the team, and we’ve known console fans have been clamoring to play the game too,” said Jake Solomon, creative director of XCOM 2 at Firaxis Games. “As avid console players ourselves, we’re excited to work with The Workshop to bring XCOM 2 to all of our fans.”

Players who pre-order XCOM 2 will also receive the Resistance Warrior Pack, offering additional soldier customisation options such as bonus outfits, headgear and custom facial war paint. The Resistance Warrior Pack also includes a “Survivor of the Old War,” a new XCOM recruit who will appear in the Avenger’s barracks. Additionally, players who pre-order the XCOM 2 Digital Deluxe Edition will receive the XCOM 2 Reinforcement Pack* which includes all paid XCOM 2 DLC along with the base game and Resistance Warrior Pack.

I guess they figured they were leaving too much money on the table by not releasing a console version.

The "PC Master Race" bullshit is absolutely ridiculous.

Based on your typical posting habits, it was a safe bet it wasn't a joke.

Wasn't this supposed to not be possible on console?

LOL!

I'll enjoy it on PS4 in September!

As someone who played through the PC version (first big PC game I finished since "Etherlords II", I think:-), I can say that I didn't see anything there that should pose a problem to current-gen consoles. I hope the developers implement some of the more popular mods and fix the awful camera - that also required a mod on PC, by the way...

Hopefully they follow bethesda's lead on mods for consoles. Some games are just so much better with mods.
