Much like its predecessor, XCOM: Enemy Unknown, it looks like XCOM 2 will be expanding beyond the PC. 2K Games and Firaxis have announced that XCOM 2 will be coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on September 6, 2016.
While the original launched on PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 simultaneously, XCOM 2 has gone through a bit of a delay. The Workshop, a studio that previously collaborated on Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons and The Evil Within, is working with Firaxis Games on porting the game.
"The incredible reception of XCOM 2 has been rewarding and humbling for the team, and we've known console fans have been clamoring to play the game too," said XCOM 2 creative director Jake Solomon. "As avid console players ourselves, we're excited to work with The Workshop to bring XCOM 2 to all of our fans."
Folks who pre-order XCOM 2 on consoles get the Resistance Warrior Pack for free, which includes the Survivor of the Old War recruit, bonus outfits, new headgear, and additional face paint. Players can also pick up the XCOM 2 Digital Deluxe Edition, which includes all of the DLC.
USgamer reviewer Kat Bailey called the original PC version a "fun ride" and an update to franchise "without sacrificing what works in the original game".
No word on a Vita version.
