XCOM 2 Delayed Until February 2016

XCOM 2, the turn-based tactical game from Firaxis Games, has been delayed to February 5th, 2016.

Firaxis issued this statement explaining this decision:

“Hello XCOM fans,

We want to give you an update on the release date for XCOM 2. We’ve set a high bar for the sequel and the entire team has been working hard to make sure we deliver a great follow-up to Enemy Unknown. We just need a little more time to make it the best possible game.

With XCOM 2, we want to have more depth, more replayability, and more investment in your soldiers and this extension will give us the time we need to deliver on our promise to you.

We appreciate your patience and continued support as we move towards February. Good luck, Commander!

-The XCOM 2 Dev Team”

XCOM 2 was originally slated for release in November 2015, but remember – delays are never a bad thing. Let us hope this is enough time to for Firaxis to make XCOM 2 the best it can be.
