Through a message on the game's official website we learn that XCOM 2, the sequel to the 2012 turn-based reboot of the series from Firaxis, has been pushed back to 2016. The game will now release on February 5th:
Hello XCOM fans,
We want to give you an update on the release date for XCOM 2. We've set a high bar for the sequel and the entire team has been working hard to make sure we deliver a great follow-up to Enemy Unknown. We just need a little more time to make it the best possible game.
With XCOM 2, we want to have more depth, more replayability, and more investment in your soldiers and this extension will give us the time we need to deliver on our promise to you.
We appreciate your patience and continued support as we move towards February. Good luck, Commander!
For what it's worth, I'm okay with the Firaxis guys taking all the time they need. The end of 2015 is already filled with a bevy of videogame releases, so I certainly can wait.
