    Last week I wrote an article on 2K Games teasing a new game with new website advent administration today they have officially announced the sequel to XCOM: Enemy Unknown.

    The website which was speculated with image etc, was thought to be a dystopia future based type of game which may be the end of the world and you the gamer had to save it. This is kind of true in a way, due to the fact that XCOM 2 is set twenty years into the future and humanity actually lost the war against the aliens.

    The game itself will be developed by Firaxis Games and will have a release in November exclusively for PC, no date has been announced for consoles unfortunately. Feral Interactive will be developing a port for the game itself for MAC and Linux users.

    "In XCOM 2, the roles have been reversed, and XCOM is now the invading force. They are hampered by limited resources and must constantly evade the alien threat in their new mobile headquarters. Players must use a combination of firepower and stealth-like tactics to help XCOM recruit soldiers and build a resistance network, while attempting to expose the evil alien agenda and save humanity. XCOM 2 will introduce gameplay features such as procedurally-generated levels, which will make each experience unique to the player, as well as offer a much deeper level of modding support. Additionally, XCOM 2 will offer a variety of new content including five updated soldier classes, increased soldier customization, more alien and enemy types, evolved tactical combat”

    2K Games president Christoph Hartmann says:

    “Firaxis proved they could reimagine a beloved franchise with XCOM: Enemy Unknown, a Game of the Year award-winning title. With XCOM 2, the team is breathing new life into the series by adding an epic narrative and challenging players to overcome near impossible odds.”

    Creative director Jake Soloman says:

    “The feedback from the passionate XCOM community played an important role in the development of XCOM 2, driving us to push the visual, gameplay and replayability boundaries of what a strategy game can be. We’re thrilled to implement long-time fan requested features such as procedural levels and modding support, as well as adding more of what makes XCOM great like new aliens, enemies and soldier classes.”

    Below is some artwork for the game:

    Here we have the statue which says, "Building a brighter future together" which an alien is helping a fallen human. propaganda eh? but anyway my point is this was from one of 2K Games tweets earlier last week teasing a new game.
