I'm somewhat new to the strategy genre, not because I've never played the games before, but because I was never all that great at them for whatever reason when I was growing up. Civilization V really warmed me up to the genre, and ironically it is also from the same developer as XCOM Enemy Unknown; Firaxis, best known for their Civilization games. So let's clear some of the confusion straight away, this XCOM game is not the shooter that is due next year (That game's title is simply XCOM), XCOM Enemy Unknown is a turn based tactical strategy game that is a re-imagination of the original from almost twenty years ago, UFO: Enemy Unknown."

XCOM: Enemy Unknown News

XCOM: Enemy Unknown expansion brings with it an enemy human agency
Sheesh...just when defending the planet couldn’t get more complex, suddenly competition shows up.

XCOM: Enemy Within part of a retail special edition, no DLC planned
It appears that console gamers wanting access to the XCOM: Enemy Within expansion for the hit game XCOM: Enemy Unknown will have to pony up again for a second retail disc, as the content has been deemed too big to be released as console DLC.

XCOM: Enemy Unknown gets Enemy Within expansion pack
As previously rumored, XCOM: Enemy Unknown is getting an expansion pack titled Enemy Within on November 12th, which should prove to be a significantly satisfying extension of the popular third-person turn-based strategy game.

2K Confirms a new XCOM game is in the works, announcement at Gamescom
The long-dormant XCOM franchise made a triumphant return with Enemy Unknown last year and hopes to continue the momentum with the third-person action strategy game The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, but that doesn’t mean 2K is resting on its laurels.

Revived XCOM shooter has new name, perspective
The Bureau: XCOM Declassified is the official name of the XCOM shooter thought to be missing in action over the past two years. The name isn’t the only thing that was given a facelift -- it’s changed from an FPS to a tactical third- person shooter.

XCOM not dead but evolved, new screenshot revealed
Reports of XCOM’s death have been greatly exaggerated. As previously assumed, 2K Marin has gone back to refine and re-brand the XCOM shooter they first revealed back in 2010, in order to differentiate it from the successful XCOM: Enemy Unknown.

(RUMOR) ’Tis it the end for the XCOM FPS?
Ever since XCOM: Enemy Unknown arrived on the scene and stole the thunder of the controversial XCOM FPS that was previously in development, the fate of the latter game has been a mystery. The recent pulling of its website may be a clue, however.

XCOM at E3
2K Games has dropped the upcoming reboot of the XCOM franchise.
