XCOM Shooter Now Known As The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, Release Date Announced

The tactical third person shooter based in the XCOM universe has gone through a long road to release. It was even considered dead and buried at one point. Now it has risen again and looks to be on its way to release.

Now called The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, the game will take place in the 60’s during the Kennedy presidency and is the origin story for the XCOM division that players took control of in last year’s [amazon_link id=”B006WQR3V0″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]XCOM: Enemy Unknown[/amazon_link].

I suck at strategy games. I am talking about an eternal kind of suck that comes from over 20 years of me trying and failing horribly. But shooting things in the face in a third person game? A little bit better at that.

The Bureau is being developed by 2K Marin, the team that made Bioshock 2. So I have initial thoughts that I will be bored through 75% of the game and then really enjoy the final parts.

The Bureau: XCOM Declassified releases on August 20th.
