Official site, YouTube trailers for XCOM FPS taken offline


2K’s successful reboot of the XCOM franchise, XCOM: Enemy Unknown, brought many new fans to the series when it was released last year. The title’s classic turn-based gameplay was combined with modern production values to procude an exciting game that appeared on multiple Game of the Year lists.

But what a lot of people have forgotten is that 2K originally resurrected the series with the announcement of a 2K Marin-developed first person shooter, simply known as XCOM. But like 1984 Ministry of Truth, it seems that the publisher is trying to shove their seven-years-in-the-making game down the Memory Hole.

The XCOM official website and two YouTube videos on 2K’s channel have been removed. Rumors abound that the game has undergone a stylistic shift at 2K Marin, but we’ll have to wait and see if that’s true or if the entire game has been scrapped.
