2K Marin XCOM shooter has 'undergone an evolution'

2K Marin's shooter tactical shooter set in the XCOM universe "has undergone an evolution" and all will be revealed "in the coming days," 2K Games revealed on its blog.

The XCOM title was first announced in 2010 and 2K Games posts that the title has changed since it was last showed at E3 2011. The company notes that XCOM: Enemy Unknown, Firaxis' turn-based strategy title, "reignited" the franchise and 2K Games feels "that the time is right to deliver a new experience within the world of XCOM."

"The creative development of this game has been a collaborative process of discovery and iteration. 2K's culture allows our studios the freedom to refine their visions, to explore new ideas, and to deliver the best possible experiences for players," the post reads. "Through this exploration, 2K Marin has refined their vision, and as a result the game has evolved into a high-stakes narrative experience imbued with core XCOM concepts."

The company refers to the frequently delayed title as "2K Marin's [redacted]." A recent Kotaku report highlights that the company registered thebureau-game.com and whathappenedin62.com domains, indicating a possible rebranding as The Bureau.

The revelations follow news of the tactical-shooter's official websites and a pair of trailers being taken offline by the game's publisher last week. At the time, a 2K spokesperson told Polygon that it has "no comment about the sites being down today."
