'Big changes' to 360 exclusive XCOM?

Rumours circulate as studio head departs

Rumours are circulating that 2K's Xbox 360 console exclusive XCOM - which we haven't seen for seven months - has "undergone some big changes" since it was announced last year.

That's according to usually reliable industry leak-oholic Superannuation, which posted on Twitter this morning: "FWIW, there's a rumor that XCOM's undergone some big changes since it was announced."


The rumour arrives after XCOM dev 2K Marin's Australian studio head seemingly resigned last month.

2K has described XCom as "the re-imagining of one of gaming's most storied and beloved franchises," claiming that it "combines the strategic core of the groundbreaking franchise with a suspense-filled narrative and distills it into a tense and unique first-person shooter experience."

The re-imagining's announcement didn't arrive without controversy though, with many fans disappointed to see the classic top-down strategy series transformed into an FPS.

We've contacted 2K for comment.

[UPDATE: 2K's given us a "no comment"]
