New XCOM to be revealed at Gamescom

With The Bureau: XCOM Declassified due out later this month, it seems 2K Games is not quite done with the Extraterrestrial Combat Unit just yet. A new title: XCOM: Enemy Within has been spotted by the Korean ratings board, prompting the publisher to make a sheepish announcement.

We still don’t know what XCOM: Enemy Within actually is, but we do know that we’ll know more at Gamescom in a few weeks. 2K has confirmed a big announcement is on the way for August 21st.

The game is listed for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC, which suggests that it could well be a full-blown sequel as compared to a mobile/tablet side-project. It could, however, just be a new batch of DLC for last year’s Enemy Unknown.

However, given the success that game saw in 2012 – and the rapturous attention it’s been getting on iOS – we’re thinking a sequel seems more likely. Either way, we’ll know in just a few weeks!
