Here's a press release with some additional information:

LOS ANGELES — June 10, 2019 — Snapshot Games announced today as part of Microsoft’s Inside Xbox presentation that Phoenix Point, the upcoming sci-fi strategy game from the creator of the original X-COM series, is expected to launch on Sept. 3, 2019, on the Microsoft Store and with Xbox Game Pass for console and PC, as well as the Epic Games store for PC and Mac.

A new cinematic trailer titled “Next Life” sets the stage for the changing face of war in Phoenix Point. Led by a massive Alien Queen, the game’s enemies transform and evolve according to the choices players make over time. Given the power to mutate their own troops to gain an advantage, Earth’s last desperate defenders will have to decide how much humanity they’re willing to sacrifice to save mankind from this ever-changing extraterrestrial threat.

Phoenix Point is a new take on strategy and tactics. Plan operations, research new technologies, and build alliances to unite the planet or destroy your rivals, then customize your squad and deploy into conflict zones around the globe with dynamic objectives and destructible environments. Procedurally generated maps and branching storylines mean no two playthroughs are the same.
