XCOM 2 delayed until 2016

"We just need a little more time to make it the best possible game"

Firaxis Games has delayed the release of XCOM 2 by three months, pushing back the release date to February 5, 2016.

"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," said the development team in a statement.

"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."

The game was originally scheduled for release in November.
