Yes. They were making a remake that looks like a terrible FPS of some sort. TONS of fans screamed foul. (google Spoony x-com Betrayal, lol) I think enough people complained that they handed off the development of a REAL X-com sequal to Firaxis Games. Who didd a bunch of the Civilization, and Sid Meyers Pirates! games. The gameplay ive seen makes it look pretty damn good. A crap ton better than the generic FPS version
Im not sure if its worth pre-ordering though. I plan on getting the 360 version but ill probably wit for it to drop. Anyone know how the giftcard works? Do you get it emailed to you later on? Im wondering i i can pre-order then return the game after i get the card
Bad info in there. They didnt just hand it over to firaxis, they have been working on it for 4 years. The shooter was pushed off due to backlash o have no doubt.
