(UPDATE) 2K Confirms XCOM Shooter Re-Reveal on April 26

Posted on April 23, 2013 AT 01:54pm

UPDATE: 2K has since confirmed that its “evolved” XCOM shooter will be revealed in ”a matter of days.”

“In the coming days the world will get a fresh look at the long-awaited squad-based tactical shooter in development at 2K Marin. Announced back in 2010, the game has undergone an evolution since we last showed it to you at E3 2011. Firaxis’ critically acclaimed turn-based strategy title, XCOM: Enemy Unknown, has reignited the classic franchise and we feel that the time is right to deliver a new experience within the world of XCOM,” 2K wrote on its blog.

“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. 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.”

So mark your calenders and prepare for the announcement!

ORIGINAL: Another viral video for 2K’s undoubtedly rebranded XCOM shooter has appeared on the same YouTube account that uploaded the Russian meteor viral video.

The video is 18 seconds long, and shows a young boy riding a red bike, then cuts abruptly to a shot of him looking skyward. At about the 16-second mark, the reel cuts and shows the following hidden gem:

2K? April 26? Smells like  XCOM’s re-reveal as The Bureau is coming Friday.

There doesn’t appear to be any additional hints, but perhaps my tired old eyes just aren’t as sharp as they used to be. Take a gander at the viral video in the embed below and let us know if you spot any other treats.
