Revamped XCOM FPS looks set for reveal

Mysterious YouTube video linked to Take-Two web domains

Take-Two's XCOM first-person shooter looks set for reveal as a rebranded title unrelated to the sci-fi franchise.

The release of the 2K Marin-developed title has been in question after it suffered a string of delays since its announcement in 2010.

The game was originally scheduled for a March 2012 release. That release window was ruled out at around the same time as Firaxis RTS XCOM: Enemy Unknown was revealed.

Now a possible viral video has appeared online featuring the source code phrase 'whathappenedin62', a web domain Take-Two registered earlier this year.

Take-Two also registered domains for thebureau-game.com and thebureau-game.net.

Mysterious packages have also been dispatched to games press this week, featuring tourist materials for locations originally planned to appear in the XCOM FPS.

Recently Take-Two removed the XCOM shooter's official site and two trailers were set to private on YouTube.

Take-Two said during its third quarter financial call in February that the shooter was still in production.
