XCOM shooter delayed

Will now arrive in the year ending March 31, 2014

One hand giveth, the other taketh away. Having yesterday announced an October release date for Firaxis' strategy game XCOM: Enemy Unknown, Take-Two has delayed the launch of 2K Marin's first person shooter take on the franchise from its current fiscal year to its next.


The BioShock 2 creator's XCOM shooter will now be released in the year ending March 31, 2014.

The game was announced in April 2010 as a PC and Xbox 360 title, but a PS3 version was confirmed last June alongside a then planned March 2012 release date, which was also delayed.
